FP1 and 2 were yesterday and told us exactly as much as FP1 and 2 always tell us, absolutely nothing.
The Red Bull and McLaren are quick. Force India is enjoying a resurgence, Ferrari are right there but wind tunnel issues are recurring. Apparently the team will have to shut down their tunnel again this winter to fix more correlation errors. There is also concern about a lack of development, making it more difficult for Alonso to secure the crown he so thoroughly deserves.
Lotus had a rough time, abandoning their DEVICE. Kimi Raikkonen in particular was affected, and did not get much track time with a KERS issue in FP2.
There were some wrecks too. Vitaly Petrov misplaced his rear wing on the front straight and Michael Schumacher couldn’t place his rear tire, pushing right onto the grass and crashing hard as a result, ironically in the same place as Paul di Resta.
