I like it, for the most part. White space in general is good—it makes things feel less cluttered—and I agree with tedster about consistency.
My only criticism is that I'm just not sure enough people are really that interested in the number of results and how long it took to warrant a relatively prominent position for that information. I'll use the number of results occasionally to get an idea of how popular a phrase is, but I've never found myself needing to know how long it took to return those results. (I've looked at the number before and I'm always impressed, but it just seems like unnecessary boasting on Google's part. I can't see any other use for it.)
