2008 Monaco F1 GP – Thursday Practice

The F1 weekend of glamour has began in Monaco with free practice. Kimi Raikkonen was the quickest driver in practice one ahed of two McLarens and Felipe Massa. The session was stopped for about 15 minutes thanks to a loose drain. The honours for being the first driver to touch the barriers and break the car in Monaco this year go to Jarno Trulli. Technical problems stopped David Coulthard and Nick Heidfeld. Not sure what problems Nelson Piquet had, but being 1 and half second slower tahn his team mate is not going to help his case (unless he was on different test program than Alonso).

The order at the top changed in the second practice. Lewis Hamilton was the fastest driver ahead of Nico Rosberg in Williams, both Ferraris and Heikki Kovalainen. The rest of the field seems to be a bit off the pace so far.

Piquet, Alonso, Trulli (again) and Sutil had encounters with barriers in this session.

Toro Rosso drivers are clearly still learning what to do with the new STR03 …
