An exciting Friday for F1 - Force India and Williams at the top of the practice timesheets

It's been ages since I felt the need to grab a screenshot from the live timing screens, but Friday free practice two was just such an occasion.

The day had got off to a bit of a slow start with all teams opting to sit in their garages for the first 25 minutes of session one, and it looked like all of last week's testing had conspired to make this Friday a dull day.

However, during the break before practice two, I get the impression that a number of teams figured they didn't have as much information as they needed, because from the off it was action all the way through the second session.

Force India climbed to the top of the timesheets early on, with Fissi leading Sutil, but more surprisingly they managed to hang in there for quite some time. I don't remember when that team were so high up the ranking so late in the day.

The fun didn't stop there though, because the Williams team achieved a similar one-two soon afterwards, this time with Nakajima the lead driver.

That sort of thing has to be kept for posterity.

And if that wasn't enough, Renault followed suit as well, their second driver coming out ahead of his (double world champion) team mate. It all made for a fantastic break from the norm.

Without a doubt this was my favourite F1 Friday so far this season, and Christine will have a full run down of the action shortly. In the meantime I'm just going to smile at the timing sheets some more!
