Paul Hembery: “With Monaco always being one of the circuits that has the most noticeable degree of track evolution during the weekend throughout the year, it’s hard to draw many firm conclusions from the first two free practice sessions, although there is already some idea of the pecking order. So far we’re seeing a difference of up to a second per lap between the two compounds, which is in line with our expectations at this point, but we would expect that gap to come down as the weekend goes on. More rubber going onto the track over the weekend also means that the cars will slide less: that in turn slows down the rate of wear and degradation even more – which is never especially high at Monaco anyway

Lotus has emerged from the first four races as Formula 1′s biggest gainer over 2012, and equally confident it can keep up its form for the remainder of the campaign. Kimi Raikkonen’s three podium finishes from the first flyaway events, which included victory in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, have helped Lotus deliver a greater points improvement than any other outfit compared to last year. Looking at the points scored in the first four races last year, against what the team have delivered this time around, Lotus has notched up 36 points more in the first four races than it did last year.

Sergio Perez admits his two Chinese Grand Prix practice crashes, coupled with the inconsistency of McLaren’s MP4-28, have upset his confidence in the car.

Fernando Alonso has laughed off suggestions that Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa has the upper hand in qualifying now.

Alonso conceded Massa was back at his best now, but made it clear he was far from worried about the situation

Rossi said Marquez had benefited from slipstreaming his Yamaha in practice two, but that his pace was real

Webber made it a Red Bull one-two in the afternoon, but both drivers made it clear they were not getting carried away with the performance of the RB9
