F1 Digest 2009 - Singapore Free Practice audio waveform

Today's F1 Digest runs through all the action from Singapore, with two Free Practice sessions completed. We were hoping to move on from last year's debacle, but with history repeating itself right under our noses, what are you gonna do?

Free Practice 1

We didn't see any rain, but the drivers might have hoped there was some precipitation, to help wash away the incredibly dusty track. There were a few spins but Grosjean topped them all.

Free Practice 2

It was Webber's turn to meet his fate in the barriers, but obviously the track hadn't improved that much as he retained a decent grid position throughout the session.

Team by Team

Red Bull are looking strong despite their lack of running in Free Practice, Brawn are also right up there and ready for the fight. Those who haven't driven at Singapore or in a night race before are starting to realise what a challenge they have ahead of them.
