Vettel was on super softs though, no?
Yes, also the two Mercedes, the two Lotus, Hulkenberg, Ricciardo & Webber. But I didn't look at the tires used by HRT, Lotus & Marussia.

Mercs were on high fuel as well.

Hamilton concentrated on long runs on the super soft and set his fastest time after a number of laps, suggesting he still has plenty in hand. Ferraris and Red Bulls don't look that quick yet, but could also have been focusing more on race pace. Mercs looked ok, but not field leading as some had predicted.

Lotus looks like they fill the tanks up, and just go from there, it's interesting how some teams think it's better to fine tune a car at low fuel, and others think the balance on high fuel is more important.

McLaren's flexi-front-wing is more powerful than Merc's DDRS?

Vettel was recorded at 311.8 km/h on the speed trap.
Hammy at 319.4km/h.
So RB aren't too far behind.. and also Vet was on softs compared to Hammny's SS.

Strange how tiny the difference between Soft and Super Soft appears to be here. Vettel gained about 1 tent in morning practice, and hamilton only gained 1.5 tents in afternoon.
