Germany 2008 - Free Practice 1 - Hockenheim takes its turn as host of the German practice action

Published by Mr. C

Without wanting to sound like a very broken record, umm, this weekend is all about the weather.

It seems that we've spent the best part of the year thus far, either looking upwards or scanning various satellite weather maps. That trend is set to continue for the next three days too, because by all accounts it'll be an unsettled weekend in Hockenheim. As an added bonus, according to Autosport.com the track is wet this morning, which might make FP1 feel like a very long 90 minute session.

In terms of cars and drivers, we have the tantalising prospect of a Ferrari team playing catchup for the first time this year, but with last week's test still fresh in everybody's minds there should be little need for much track familiarisation, although a number of people out there may want ensure their wet weather reputations don't take another battering this Sunday.

The action begins at 9am in the UK (or 10am local time). The two of us are back behind our desks this weekend and will thus be watching ITV's live stream and following the ever exciting timing data. Details of other means to keep up with the action are listed on our Formula 1 on the Internet page.

Remember to keep the track guide close and do shout us if you're around. Let us know where you're watching and if anyone's seen the mother-in-law this weekend, please let us know.
