If the race to the rear can be predicted from Free Practice it looks as though the Toro Rosso's will have to work hard this week to avoid becoming one of the bottom three teams. In Free Practice 1 Heikki set a faster lap than both Vergne and Ricciardo, and Petrov has replicated that feat in Free Practice 2 beating his team mate and the Red Bull sister team in the timing sheets.
Heikki managed to split the Toro Rossos this afternoon meaning that the live FP2 timing sheet shows the following:
17th Petrov 1.40.963s
18th Ricciardo 1.41.121s
19th Kovalainen 1.41.197s
20th Vergne 1.41.263s
If Petrov can continue this into the weekend we might see him out-qualify his team mate for only the second time so far this season
