First Saturday Practice Session Report - Results
Ferrari continued their domination with Rubens Barrichello and Michael Schumacher the only drivers to set a time under the 1:19 mark. The surprise was that Barrichello managed a time that was almost 0.4 seconds better than his team-mate. Can he keep it up in Qualifying ?
David Coulthard and Ralf Schumacher were 3rd
and 4th while the Sauber pair were in 5th and 6th. Raikkonen managed 7th
fastest while Button who was third fastest could only manage 8th ahead of Montoya
The session was stopped for a few minutes
when Mark Webber lost his front wing on the main straight. He managed to
control the car and take it back to the pits. It is believed he was trying a
new front wing.
Takuma Sato covered the most number of laps
with 16 followed by Eddie Irvine with 14 and Enrique Bernoldi with 13. Mark
Webber only managed 4 laps while McNish only 6. All other drivers covered
between 7 and 12 laps.
