The track was very slippery, so many drivers didn’t had much grip. Hülkenberg, Petrov and Webber spun out and the most cars were going of in Turn 19. The Red Bulls are doing well, you saw the domination from Vettel. He was 1.4 seconds ahead of Hamilton, who is also a candidate for the Pole and the fastest times in the next two FP’s. Alonso was also doing well, so the fastest times should come from those three drivers. Pedro De La Rosa and Qing Ma were under the 107% time (1:44:993).
