2008 Italian F1 GP – Friday Practice

There is not much to report from practice one in Monza, except heavy rain, flooded pit lane and water in the garages. For the record the top three drivers were Adrian Sutil, Rubens Barrichello and Giancarlo Fisichella. This is the second time Adrian Sutil posted fastest time in free practice, following his P1 in Saturday practice in Monaco last year, also in wet conditions, but not as wet this morning in Monza …

The second practice started on damp track but that would dry rather quickly. Kimi Raikkonen topped the time sheets ahead of BMW Sauber duo and Lewis Hamilton. It remains to be seen how useful the practice running on dry track will be as the weather in Monza remains unpredictable for the rest of the weekend with chances of rain quite big for both Saturday and Sunday.

On another note, Red Bull decided to play their joker and take an change the engine in Mark Webber’s car. As a result of this penalty free engine change Webber will not have to use the same engine for two tough-on-engine races in a row (Spa and Monza). Click here for the 2008 engine statistics.
