Warm-up Session Report - Results

Michael Schumacher was again in a class of his own during the Warm-up session. He was 0.4 seconds ahead of both his team-mate Rubens Barrichello and Kimi Raikkonen. David Coulthard was 4th ahead of Ralf Schumacher and Jarno Trulli.
Massa, Fisichella, Salo and Villeneuve make the top 10.

It appears that the McLarens race pace is going to be strong and they might match Rubens Ferrari but they are unlikely to be able to stay with Michael. Williams appear to be struggling although their warm-up times have rarely been impressive. Ralf is over 0.9 seconds off the pace while Montoya is 2 seconds off the pace.
Although warm-up times aren't too indicative but we could see McLaren firmly in second place ahead of Williams here.
Behind the top 3 teams it looks like Renault will be strong with Sauber, Jordan and BAR also showing signs of strong pace for the race. Of course it also depends on what strategy they will be adopting, a 2 or 3 stopper ?

Giancarlo Fisichella went off into the gravel and got stuck there just after half way into the session. A number of other drivers also went off but managed to recover.

It was good to see Allan McNish on the track following his massive crash yesterday in Qualifying.

Michael Schumacher covered the most number of laps with 15 followed by Salo, Villeneuve and Sato with 13 laps each. Trulli, Fisichella and Yoong only covered 7 laps each.

It looks that Michael Schumacher has no competition for the drivers. His only worry would be a reliability problem that could prevent him for taking the race and achieving a continuous run of podium finishes for the whole of the 2002 season.

Race starts at 2:30 PM local time. Our coverage starts at 2:00 PM local time
