Abu Dhabi 2011 - Free Practice 1 results // Button leads the way with Friday drivers in action behind him

Published by Christine

In glorious sunshine, the Free Practice action got underway at Yas Marina. Three faces made a return to the cockpit for some Friday running - with Robert Wickens, Romain Grosjean and Jean-Éric Vergne all taking over the seats of their respective cars. Both Ferrari drivers spun off track in very similar fashion, Timo Glock also went for quite a spin, whilst Rubens Barrichello came to a spluttering halt when his car gave up beneath him. Jenson Button put in the best time of the morning session to take an early lead.
