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

Published by Christine

Pirelli are handing out another batch of experimental hard tyres to the teams in the hopes they can finally get some data from Friday practice. The teams, meanwhile, will want to spend as much time as possible getting used to the track at Hockenheim - particularly as it is only one we visit every two years rather than coming round every twelve months. Red Bull have gone well here in the past, as has Fernando Alonso, but it's still all to play for in the 2012 season, and this is just the first session of many this weekend.
