This sentence doesn't sound really natural: I suggest "¿Cómo adelanta su amigo?" -- or, why not? Just as in English, I'd use a continuous tense: "¿Cómo está adelantando su amigo?", "¿Cómo está avanzando su amigo?", "¿Cómo está progresando su amigo?" -- I've heard this last one in particular quite a lot, I would say. Notice the word order in all cases, too.
Best regards,
Ignacio.

Thank you for the correction. I should have been more careful.
