Mark Webber has taken his Red Bull car by the horns during practice at the Malaysian Grand Prix, dominating through both the P1 and P2 sessions.
The Australian lapped his RB7 in 1m 36.876s, but Jenson Button took the fastest times in the first two sectors on a lap of 1m 36.881s that left him just 0.005s adrift.
McLaren must also be happy with their day’s work after Jenson Button finishes second fastest in FP2, just 0.005secs off the pace, and Lewis Hamilton third with a lap of 1:37.010.
Michael Schumacher survived a scary grassy moment down at Turn 6 to go fifth fastest for Mercedes ahead of Felipe Massa’s Ferrari.
Nico Rosberg was seventh ahead of Nick Heidfeld, who recovered some of this morning’s lost time to go eighth fastest with Fernando Alonso and Jaime Alguersuari completing the top ten.
Whilst practice generally only offers a guideline as to the weekend to come, it is fair to assume Red Bull and McLaren will likely be fighting over the podium places come Sunday.
