Spanish GP: Practice Results


Fernando Alonso was fourth fastest and Kimi Raikkonen sixth at the end of the first free practice session for the Spanish Grand Prix at the Catalunya circuit. The track was still very dirty, as the Scuderia Ferrari drivers tackled aero testing, as well as working on set-up and tyres. This morning, Fernando completed 23 laps with a best time of 1.28.128. Kimi was not far behind, doing 19 laps, the best of them in 1.28.337. Shortly after the mid point of the session, president Montezemolo arrived in the team garage.

Fastest was Lewis Hamilton, who did a 1.27.023 in the Mercedes, 8 tenths quicker than Jenson Button in the McLaren and over 9 faster than third placed Daniel Ricciardo in the Red Bull. Splitting the two Ferraris was the other Mercedes of Nico Rosberg.
