The gloss seemed to diminish from Red Bull in the second practice session, with Mark Webber sidelined for almost the entire 90-minute session with a driveshaft failure, and team-mate Sebastian Vettel also missed a lot of the session when his mechanics had to change his brakes.

In the second session, Vettel’s best time was over a second slower than the pace-setting Nico Rosberg, while Mark Webber five solitary laps yielded a quickest that was over 5 seconds off the benchmark time.

Webber didn’t pull any punches when he described his Friday: "Not such a good day and not enough mileage," he said.

Vettel was equally frustrated, but sanguine about the outcome of the day: “Unfortunately, we didn’t get a lot of running today.I would have liked more track time but it’s not Christmas and we’re not given things for free.”

‘Nuff said!
