So after two sessions, I would say, not only have we not really learned anything, the winter testing times may also have been meaningless. Macca looked good in p1, but didn't bother in p2.
Where were the Lotus'? After looking so strong in testing they did nothing. Hardly any meaningful laps in p2.
RBR seem to be getting laps, running their program and not caring about setting times yet.
And Ferrari... Alonso's time in p2 was set on primes. He never ran on options and would have probably ended in p2 but slowed way down in sector 3 on his last lap ( probably to avoid a spinning Kobayashi). Were the Reds sandbagging in testing?
Looks like we'll still have to wait until qualifying to learn anything substantive.
