China 2010 - Free Practice 1 // Shanghai plays host to the next round of the Formula One season

Published by Christine

Our fourth race of the year is just around the corner, and I think everyone is a little wary of how the weekend will go. Today is all about Free Practice though, and our drivers are raring to get back behind the wheel.

Weather update

The weather forecasts suggest that it will be nice and sunny for both Friday and Saturday, meaning at least the practice sessions will be dry. It also looks like Sunday might be wet, which would be an exact reverse of what happened in Malaysia.

One to watch

Keep your eye on the Ferrari drivers, as they are apparently set to test their version of the F-Duct during the weekend. Sauber have been the only team to visibly introduce the concept, so it will be interesting to see how the red team shape the idea on their car.

Predictions please

Who will finish the morning on top? Will the weather affect running today? Will there be any red flags, and who will cause them? Will there be any surprisingly fast drivers?
