Australian GP - Practice One Results

Results: Hulkenberg 12th (1:29.865), Di Resta 13th (1:29.881), Karthikeyan 23rd (No Time Set).

First thing i want to say is that it's great to be back writing these short session reviews - it's what i enjoy most! :-)

A solid session from the Sahara Force India boys saw them finish 12th and 13th with no major issues - the team will be satisfied with that. The only real conclusions we can draw from those laptimes is that we will be battling in the midfield (as expected) and that there is more pace is the car yet. How do i know there is more pace to come? I was looking closely at Paul's laptimes and before he set his fastest lap, his laptime was a 1:30.2. That's an improvement of 4 tenths of a second on his final lap; if he was running near the cars' ultimate pace any improvements would be much smaller than that!

As for Narain Karthikeyan he went out on track and had a loss of oil pressure, causing the engine to cut out which resulted in no laptime for the Indian driver :-(

He'll be hoping for better in FP2!

See you then!
