For various reasons there was no running for HRT today. They revealed that their F111 would be on track on Friday, but they wouldn’t be running before then. So it was the other 11 teams racing around Barcelona, and the two Sebs were in the lead on times: Vettel had an amazing 1:21.865, and Buemi had a 1:22.396. Both those times are better than Webber’s from yesterday, and it was a massive improvement from Buemi on yesterday’s time, where Toro Rosso had very little running due to a car failure.
Birthday boy Pastor Maldonado was the unluckiest driver, not getting in many laps after the Williams suffered from mechanical problems for most of the day. He only had 29 laps. The McLaren and Virgin were also low on laps, and Trulli was the other driver to not make it to 100 – but only two less.
