Good friday performance from Button! congrats to that.

Scaring one from Red Bull – they normally run heavy and race program on fridays. I am sure they did it again today as part of their normal routine. That means the gap to the rest is even bigger! So its clearly a 2 league field now. Impressive and hats down to the team.

McLaren looks good, but they always look better on friday. Merc seems to be improved again and closing the gap. Ferrari is static somewhere between McLaren and Merc. It will be interesting to see whether Merc can already bypass Ferrari. Their perfomance is disappointing to me.

Lets see what will be tomorrow when all the cards are on the table.
