Spain 2012 - Free Practice 1 results // Fernando Alonso leads the way to the home crowd's delight

Published by Christine

The sun was shining brightly in Barcelona today as the drivers got their cars out on track for the first time since the mid-season test. We saw flo-viz and test tubes aplenty, whilst McLaren ran with extra bumps on the nose to anticipate what a higher front would look like from the driver's point of view. Meanwhile, four test drivers got a chance in the car, with Valtteri Bottas, Jules Bianchi, Dani Clos and Alexander Rossi all participating. Fernando Alonso posted the fastest time of the morning, with Sebastian Vettel behind him.
