Today is the 10th July 2009 and this is F1Minute.
Free Practice got underway in Germany today, with a nice, refreshing glimpse at the cars amidst the ongoing political rumblings. Refreshing is the word, with both sessions seeing a little bit of rain, but not so much the action was halted. Mark Webber topped the timesheets in FP1, with a chaotic session that saw Sutil pull to a halt on track with mechanical issues, only to be joined moments later at the same spot by Vettel who was also having car trouble. The other Force India was doing well at the hands of Fisichella, and he finished the morning fifth.
The second session saw Hamilton end up on top, with Vettel just behind him - his car clearly fixed from the morning. Sutil also recovered well, flying the flag for Force India up in sixth, whilst Fisichella ended up last.
Elsewhere, Red Bull confirmed yesterday that technical director Geoff Willis has left the team, with a statement suggesting that his job was redundant. No word on his plans yet.
That’s all for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
