Free Practice 1 from Canada // Formula 1 World Championship 2012

Published by Christine Blachford

F1 is back in action in Montreal, with the first of two Free Practice sessions ready to get underway. With Red Bull facing the difficult task of hurriedly changing their car, there's room for the rest of the teams to close the gap once more. McLaren tend to do well around Canada, but we're also open to the idea of a seventh winner this weekend. No matter, though, it all starts now, with 90 minutes of session time open for teams to get a feel for the balance of their cars and the grip available underneath them.
