Thursday's drivers conference featured Rubens Barrichello (Williams), Narain Karthikeyan (HRT), Felipe Massa (Ferrari), Michael Schumacher (Mercedes), Jarno Trulli (Team Lotus) and Adrian Sutil (Force India). Team Ferrari were highly visible in their fiery red livery. Team Lotus mechanics posed alongside piles of soft and hard compound tyres for the race. A few garages away, all was quiet at the Petronas Mercedes hold. Red Bull of course, true to its party-hard image, had club music streaming out.
