Of course one part alone cannot claim to be a silver bullet. But the car this afternoon with the winglets is quite a bit quicker than the morning session. If the track stays dry and the rubber isn't washed away, then it looks good for McLaren.chasefreak wrote:alonso is on p3 with soft tyres

That may be. One thing I also thought of is that maybe it has something to do with more mechanical grip of McLaren that worked better when track got cleaner. However, Ferrari were slower than P1...DaveKillens wrote:What is interesting to me is that in the first practice, both Ferraris set quickest times. Yet in the second practice, they fell behind McLaren and Renault. MY opinion is that Ferrari have the pace, and spent the second session working on the details, like tire evaluation, etc. So we'll just have to wait until qualifying, but I expect Ferrari to be right up there, possibly a pole.
Althuogh the others went fast too as the track has improved a lot.Scotracer wrote:Well Mclaren were running the Dumbo-wings in FP2 but not in FP1 -- something to do with the performance difference?
