Spain 2008 - Free Practice 1 - Formula One returns to Europe and the Circuit de Catalunya

Published by Mr. C

Blimey it's been so long I'm not sure if I remember what to do here!

Formula 1 returns from its short, early season break, and we're in Europe this weekend. The Circuit de Catalunya is the destination, the first of two Spanish GP's in 2008.

Reports say the weather is lovely and there couldn't be a nicer welcome home for the teams. At the moment, it seems unlikely that there will be any rain during the weekend, so performances here should make a fine barometer for the rest of the season.

The big news this morning is Super Aguri will race this weekend, but no-one is expecting them to do a lot of running today.

Free Practice 1 begins at 10am local time (9am in the UK). We're following Formula 1's live timing screens and watching ITV's online coverage.

Christine will be at work for part of the day, with numbers, limited video access, but no audio, so as much as possible we'll try and keep her in loop as to any excitement on track.

Please shout if you're up and about, tell us what you're looking forward to and where you'll be following the action from.
