    I can't see free drift causing the problem, of it being late.
    Since it was in free drift then the solar panels wouldn't be locked with the 
    sun, and other things being effected because the station oritation control 
    was off.
    I would have more to do with an increase in drag, or the did a orbital burn. 
    Did they preform a burn ? I don't rember seeing a burn to be planned.

    Last night I ve waited for ISS to pass from my hometown. It was 2 minutes
    late(I use a pretty good watch which is updated daily so it isn't a problem
    of timing). Is this have to do with the free drift that is reported earlier?
