Spain 2009 - Free Practice 1 // Barcelona plays host to the first European weekend of the season

Published by Christine

Although we thought Bahrain was the weekend for normality to be restored, it turned out to be too hot. Perhaps Spain will be it instead?

Weather update

Early weather indications suggest that Sunday might be a bit wet, but for the most part, the few days leading up to the Grand Prix will be nice and sunny. That doesn't help data collection, really.

One to watch

Alonso must be the one to watch today, just to see if being in front of his home crowd does add anything to his motivation. There are so many teams with new parts though, it's worth keeping your eyes peeled at all times.

Predictions please

Will we see rain this weekend? Will BMW be able to pull themselves off the bottom of the timesheets? Will Nico reign supreme during practice again? Can Brawn fend off the competition?
