Canadian GP - Practice One

Results: Di Resta 8th (1:17.294), Hulkenberg 10th (1:17.549), Karthikeyan 24th (1:20.839).

Good effort by the Force India boys to see both inside the top ten, hoping to see more of the same through the rest of the weekend. Canada is a circuit that should suit both drivers well as the car has always had good straight line speed and the circuit has alot of fast speed sections. Sutil will be back in the car replacing Hulkenberg for FP2 and the rest of the weekend.

Karthikeyan did a solid job for Hispania, just three tenths down on Glock in 23rd. Teammate Liuzzi was in 22nd, 0.9seconds faster than Karthikeyan.

One further thing from the session i want to point out is that defending World Champion, Sebastian Vettel, went into the wall of champions after making an error entering the final chicane. For those who don't know, the wall of champions is the wall on the outside of the final corner in Canada and it's quite simply called that because most F1 champions have crashed into it at some point since Canada became an F1 track in 1967. Vettel has now added his name to the list.

Looking forward to FP2 just a few hours away!
