Korean GP - Practice One Results

FP1 Results: Di Resta 3rd (2:02.912), Sutil 4th (2:03.141), Chandhok 11th (2:06.350), Karthikeyan 15th (2:08.832).

Heavy rain fell for several hours leading upto the start of the first practice session in Korea and as a result we saw no timed laps for the first 54 minutes of the session as teams/drivers looked to save wet tyres incase they are needed tomorrow or on Sunday (they only receive three sets of wets at the start of the weekend).

Nevertheless with around half an hour to go we got some laptimes, although in these conditions they mean absolutely nothing. Having said that it's very nice to see the Force India's and Karun Chandhok higher in the standings compared to normal =)

As for incidents alot of drivers were running wide including Paul Di Resta, whereas Karun Chandhok and Narain Karthikeyan (both doing FP1 only) had spins for Team Lotus and HRT respectively, but both drivers got away with their incidents - no harm done!

Okay, that concludes the FP1 review. It's just after 3:30AM here where i am in the UK so i'm off to get a few hours sleep before FP2. Thanks for reading!
