First Friday Practice Session Report - Results

By looking the top 6 one would think that the Honda engine must have improved dramatically given that 3 of their cars are in the top 6. In reality though it is the Bridgestone tyres that made this order possible.

Ferrari are usually fastest and when the Michelin tyres are no match for the Bridgestones then they dominate. Michael Schumacher set the fastest time of the session over 0.35 seconds ahead of his team-mate Rubens Barrichello. Felipe Massa in the Ferrari powered Sauber was 3rd but a massive 1.633 seconds off the pace. Jacques Villeneuve in the Honda powered BAR equalled Massa's time but is classified in 4th as he set that time after Massa while Fisichella in the Honda powered Jordan and Panis in the second BAR made the top 6.

Kimi Raikkonen was the fastest Michelin runner in 7th place overall and over 2.2 seconds off the pace. Nick Heidfeld was 8th ahead of David Coulthard and Ralf Schumacher.

As the track was dirty and dusty, the lap times continued to drop during the session however apart from Michael Schumacher, no other driver set a time better than their best time during the practice session here last year!.

Anthony Davidson who takes Alex Yoong's seat at Minardi for the next 2 races had an encouraging session setting a time within the 107% mark of Michael's time and under a second slower than his team-mate Mark Webber.

The Arrows team are not taking part in this grand prix as they continue to try and find a way out of their financial problems.

A number of drivers went off the track during the session most of them recovered although Felipe Massa lost it towards the end of the session and was stuck in the gravel.

Jacques Villeneuve and Anthony Davidson covered the most number of laps with 25 laps each followed by Olivier Panis with 24. Mika Salo and Eddie Irvine covered the least amount of laps with 12 laps each.

With the track getting grippier and the temperatures increasing, the Michelin runners should close the gap. By how much ? we'll have to wait and see!
