Australian Grand Prix

The top six cars were separated by 0.73 of a second in today's practice for the Australian Grand Prix.

The two McLarens of Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton led the way from Alonso, Vettel, Webber and Schumacher.  Massa was 7th quickest.

Jenson Button has won the last two races in Australia and seems to be looking good for a third win.   However we will see whether Red Bull can pull out the extra margins when it counts again this year when qualifying starts tomorrow.

It is good to see McLaren being competitive after their testing problems.  Mercedes GP have continued their pre-season promise.

Practice informs us of little in relation to proper qualifying and still less the likely race outcome.  However, assuming both cars in each team were on similar setups then we are starting to see a pattern of who will be quick in each team in relation to his team mate.   Also despite good times for Williams, Sauber and Renault in testing it is still McLaren, Ferrari and Red Bull who are making the pace.
