Webber was second for Red Bull, with Sébastien Buemi third for Toro Rosso. Lotus had a terrible day, cut short by a crash out on track for Jarno Trulli. In their post-test press release, the team revealed that it was a car failure and not driver error that had caused the accident, and a lack of spare parts meant they had to curtail their programme mid-morning.

Other teams having trouble included Jérôme D'Ambrosio who stopped out on track and was whisked away for a lengthy delay in the garage. Michael Schumacher and Pastor Maldonado both caused some stoppage time when their Mercedes and Williams cars stopped out on track.
