Germany 2009 - Free Practice 1 // Off track concerns are put to one side as the action begins once more

Published by Christine

Thankfully, the German action gets underway just in time to distract us from all things FIA and FOTA, and it is to Free Practice 1 that we turn for a fresh glimpse of the cars. We haven't seen them for weeks!

Weather update

It looks as though Friday is supposed to see rain at the Nürburgring that could continue through Saturday and brighten up by Sunday. This may mean a lack of running today, though.

One to watch

The McLaren boys, as Hamilton has suggested that the team are taking steps forward all the time, and are close to finding out the root cause of their problem. Knowing the problem and fixing it, though, are two very different things.

Predictions please

Will the weather adversely affect the running today? Will we get away with no mention of politics? Will any German drivers go for broke in front of the crowds? For that matter, will their be any crowds?
