Free Practice 1 results - India 2013 // Red Bull lock out the front row as Alonso's gearbox gives way

Published by Christine

Free Practice for the Indian Grand Prix began with just a short stint for Fernando Alonso. Six laps under his belt and the Ferrari driver's gearbox gave up, forcing an early end to his session. It was otherwise a quiet practice, Pastor Maldonado went off track and Lewis Hamilton also had a brief excursion through the gravel. James Calado was in Paul di Resta's car at Force India, taking it for a spin. Literally. He recovered and continued, finishing the morning 18th. The fastest three were Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber and Nico Rosberg.
