Chinese Grand Prix – Friday Practice

by F1Fan on April 16, 2010

Friday Practice at the Chinese Grand Prix had an unusually high number of incidents, during the morning session the Ferrari of Fernando Alonso gave up the ghost with another engine failure and Sebatian Buemi had a massive off after catastrophic front suspension failure.

The afternoon session saw Lewis Hamilton’s Mclaren set fastest lap, followed by Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes GP and then Hamilton’s team mate Jenson Buton in third with Micheal Schumacher close behind in fourth. For the second Grand Prix in a row Mercedes engined cars top the time sheets in Friday Practice. Towards the end of the session Heikki Kovalainen’s Lotus stopped on track with engine problems and Vitaly Petrov had a wild ride after going wide in a corner beaching his Renault in the run off area.

Toro Rosso couldn’t get Buemi’s severely damaged car rebuilt in time for the afternoon session and he was unable to get any track time. Interestingly his team mate Jamie Alguersuari drove the highest number of laps and was the fastest Ferrari engined car of the second session.

Roll on Qualifying tomorrow.
