Canada 2012 - Free Practice 1 results // Lewis Hamilton gets off to a good start, as Kovalainen hits the wall

Published by Christine

The first practice session in Montreal was interrupted by a lengthy red flag period after Heikki Kovalainen hit the wall and sprayed bits of Caterham all over the track. Before the session was halted, the Lotus teammates found pace and battled for number one, before Lewis Hamilton topped the times. Nico Rosberg was the only drive who could trouble him but it was the McLaren driver on top. Jenson Button, meanwhile, was left with little running after an oil leak saw him complete only 12 laps.
