Alonso not impressed by Button's pace.
Alonso believes that McLaren were showing off their pace while Ferrari focussed mainly on reliability rather than the F10's abilities to set quick laps.

All I hope for this season is that we can have less drama, ie the diffusers from last season, and focus on the racing.

Take these times with a grain of salt,

As mentioned in a previous post, not all cars practiced on the same day (the last day being a dry day) all other days were in the rain on intermediate tires. (probably the explanation of the difference between Vettel and Webber)

Also, with the huge fuel tank, its impossible to tell which cars ran with a full l tank vs those that were running with qualifying loads (near empty)

I've been interested in F1 for the past 10 years. This is shaping up to be one of the more interesting seasons. I'm a bit bummed out that Riakonnen left for Rally, but am pretty excited to see the return of Shumi.

My guess is that Ferrari, McLaren, Red Bull, and Mercedes will be at the top of the timesheets come racetime

Let the races begin!
