I wish that McLaren will do as well in the race as they do in the practice.

By reading the driver quotes on the formula1 website it gives some insights on to the practice strategy of some of the teams.

Mclaren run lightish. Red Bull seem to run with half fuel. Mercedes seem to run with about half fuel as well. Williams run with less revs.

For Mclaren this quote from Lewis could be good news or bad depending on his context

“The car does feel good, but our pace looks pretty similar to some of the other cars on long runs.”

Is he talking about a light car or a car with equal fuel load?

if what Bruce say’s is true then it looks very good for Merc – Only beating Mclaren though. They still have red bull and Ferrari to content with.

…and Michael keeps its strong position BEHIND Rosberg. No Lauda or Mansell comeback, here.

…but maybe Mansell’s 1995 comeback.

The Ferraris are never too far apart from each other. This is slightly disturbing…

Vettel thinks the Ferrari’s are running quite heavy which is the reason they tend to be in the middle of the Practice time sheet
