China 2009 - Free Practice 1 // Two races in, and no real clue who is on top form

Published by Christine

Australia always produces mixed up results, and Malaysia was rained off early. Will China provide some semblance of sense of how things really stack up? There's only one way to find out.

Weather update

Weather.com has the sun high in the sky and it generally quite warm and dry. Although this new timeslot for China is something to keep an eye on, for now it seems as though things are stable out there. The long range forecast may tell a different story though.

One to watch

Kubica will be the man to watch today, as BMW have suggested he will be running KERS to see how it works. They've been working hard trying to solve the problem of weight distribution, and if it works, then Kub could be allowed to play with KERS just like his teammate is.

Predictions please

Most predictions centre around the rear diffusers at the moment. Which team will be the first to bring it in? Who will have the best when they finally do arrive? Will they really make all the difference and close the field? Will Brawn GP still reign supreme throughout the weekend?
