Italy 2012 - Free Practice 1 results // A dry Friday allows Schumacher to shine as Ma makes his debut

Published by Christine

With the sun shining over the Monza circuit, drivers got some decent dry running in making quite a change to the washed out sessions last week in Spa. It was Michael Schumacher who led the way in FP1, his fastest time set about halfway through the session. Teammate Nico Rosberg was also doing well up in third, with Jenson Button sandwiched between them. Further back, Jérôme D'Ambrosio made his return with Lotus, posting the 15th fastest time to Räikkönen's 7th, whilst new Chinese driver Ma Qing Hua was last, and just about two seconds off Pedro de la Rosa.
