Greater Noida: McLaren Mercedes might not have the best of the free practice sessions today, but its drivers -- Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button -- have already set their sights on tomorrow and said a good qualifying race will be key to the team's success in Sunday's race.

Defending champion Sebastian Vettel emerged as the fastest driver in both the practice sessions with teammate Mark Webber finishing a close second, as Red Bull put up an impressive show in the free practice sessions.
