Free Practice 1 results - Britain 2013 - A wet session delays running, as eleven drivers set lap times

Published by Christine

It was a wet start to the running at Silverstone, with just a few drivers heading out early for installation laps and then no action for almost forty minutes. The standing water was keeping cars in the garage, but eventually Esteban Gutiérrez broke the silence. It wasn't until there were just 13 minutes left that Daniel Ricciardo set the first lap time, though. In the tricky conditions, Charles Pic found himself spinning into the barriers and losing a nose, whilst Valtteri Bottas narrowly missed colliding with a marker board. In the end, only 11 drivers set a time in the morning.
