European GP - Practice One

Results: Sutil 8th (1:41.955), Hulkenberg 18th (1:43.769), Karthikeyan 23rd (1:46.926), Chandhok 24th (No Time Set)

Good effort by Force India's Sutil, 20 laps completed and lots of data gathered, however his teammate Nico Hulkenberg unfortunately lost control of the car under breaking and tapped the wall on his seventh lap causing some small damage (bodywork, front wing and rear suspension). The mechanics should be able to repair the car by skipping lunch although i am sure Di Retsa won't be too happy that he doesn't have much data to work with when he gets back in the car for FP2. We know Di Resta is a quality driver though so hopefully he can do more laps than his competitors in second practice to compensate.

Karthikeyan had a solid run in FP1, finishing 23rd. He is locked in a battle with the Virgin's and teammate Liuzzi this weekend.

Karun Chandhok's bad luck in sessions this year continued! He's taken part in three FP1 sessions this season and has only got through to the end of the session once (Turkey). In Australia he crashed and today he had a gearbox issue. He will now handover to Trulli for the rest of the weekend and will next take part during FP1 for the British GP - hopefully his luck will change for then! =)
