Schumacher top in rainy Belgian practice one

Published

on

Aug.26 – The Seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher and his team-mate Nico Rosberg are set the best lap times beginning of the session, following heavy rain hit Spa’s first practice on Friday morning.

Last stage McLaren’s Jenson Button, Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel and Button’s team-mate Lewis Hamilton set quickest dry time on the top five.

Sebastian Vettel’s RB7 with a modified front wing was first back out on-track 22 minutes following the heavy shower arrived, with the McLaren of Hamilton suffering a huge aquaplaning moment in the middle of Blanchimont as he ran on Pirelli’s Intermediate tyre.

The Brazilian Bruno Senna and Force India’s Paul di Resta both crashed at the Fagnes Chicane. Bruno Senna was first to lose control, damaging his back wing against the tyre barriers, before Paul di Resta’s right-hand sideways impact brought out the red flags with just under 20 minutes to go. Jarno Trulli suffered two dramatic moments at the Fagnes Chicane, with the first being a trip across the grass and second a spin on the exit of the curve.
