However Sebastian Vettel really put the marker down, 1.4s ahead of Lewis Hamilton with Fernando Alonso another 0.6s down the road.
It looks bad but then everyone learns at their own pace and the predicted laptime for today was of the order of 1m39s. To put it in perspective this was an unknown track, a green surface, a relatively cold morning, and we are all somewhat overhyped and enthusiastic about this race, without due cause as yet.
