Kimi Raikkonen at Barcelona is the man of the moment; the quickest driver at the wheel of the quickest car. Felipe Massa - who turned 27 today - was close in the morning, but he made a few too many mistakes. -RENAULTBoth cars were in the top seven in the morning, and the top three in the afternoon, with Fernando Alonso and Nelson Piquet incredibly closely matched for pace. But engineering chief Pat Symonds warned: "Friday does not necessarily represent the complete picture."-WILLIAMS-TOYOTAA promising showing, with both runners inside the afternoon top seven, and Kazuki Nakajima conspicuous in fourth.-RED BULL-RENAULTMark Webber is hopeful of making Q3 after going sixth quickest in the afternoon session. David Coulthard was eighth best in both 90 minute practices.-FORCE INDIA-FERRARIPreparations for qualifying propelled both Giancarlo Fisichella and Adrian Sutil respectively inside the top ten. "I think we are a lot more competitive than we expected to be," said technical boss Mike Gascoyne.-MCLAREN-MERCEDESA bad day for Heikki Kovalainen; off Lewis Hamilton's pace in the morning, a rear-end change in the break, and finally stranded beside the circuit with a throttle problem after just eight laps in the afternoon. Hamilton was third in the morning but eleventh at the end of the second 90 minute session. "There was too much oversteer and we tried a lot of different things to improve but didn't make the progress we wanted," he said.-BMW-SAUBERNeither driver shone in the afternoon, as they concentrated on race setup. Robert Kubica again appears to have the edge over Nick Heidfeld, and his best showing was fourth in the morning session.-TOYOTANot a good day for the Japanese team, with Timo Glock only managing to outpace the slow Super Aguris in the afternoon despite putting in a lot of laps. "I don't think it is as bad as the timesheets show today," cautioned chief engineer Dieter Gass.-HONDAWith the now horn-nosed RA108, Honda's drivers settled near the bottom of the midfield, with Jenson Button's morning tenth place the highlight of the three hours of practice.-TORO ROSSO-FERRARINear-identical pace from both drivers, with Sebastian Vettel and Sebastien Bourdais between eighteenth and twentieth in both ninety minute sessions. "Everyone has made big steps forward with their newer cars," Bourdais lamented. -SUPER AGURI-HONDAOn Friday afternoon, less than nine tenths covered the top twelve runners, but - right at the back - Super Aguri's car is more than a full second slower than its nearest rival. At least the struggling team was in action at the end of a dire week. "I'd like to thank everyone involved with the team for their steadfastness and resolve during difficult times," said sporting boss Graham Taylor.
