After the excitement of the inaugural laps on the Korean International Circuit, Free Practice settled into a more routine fashion, with McLaren and Red Bull leading the way. It will be interesting to see how the track conditions have changed overnight, and how long it takes the drivers to get back on the pace.

The forecasts are beginning to close in, and what started out as three days of sunshine is starting to look more like rain. Sunday already has precipitation forecast, and Saturday is due to be cloudy, although the sun will still be out and about.

One to watch

Bruno Senna desperately needs to get some laps under his belt this morning, as he had very little running during both practice sessions yesterday. His first practice was cut short due to a suspension problem, which then took most of the second practice to fit. He could only set one laptime.

Unfortunately, we had a technical failure on Bruno Senna's car and he had to stop before the end of the session. This is also the reason why he started late in the second practice. After this difficult day for us, we are focusing on qualifying and the race, where we hope to be a bit luckier and get more experience on this new circuit.

- Colin Kolles

Watch for as many laps as possible from Bruno today.

Predictions please

Who will finish this morning on top? Will they then go on to take pole position? Will anyone crash out at this late stage? How will the weather hold up, and more importantly, how will the track hold up?
