1 Mins read

Adrian Sutil showed his wet weather form once again in first practice for the German Grand Prix this weekend at Hockenheim.

The wet session saw many drivers head off track as they struggled to find grip. Felipe Massa struggled during the early stages of the session, aquaplaning and spinning off track five times. The Brazilian would finally manage to get everything together to put in the second fastest time of the session.

The time sheets would show Jenson Button in third place but the McLaren team had a tough session. Early on in the session Button complained of poor visibility and told the team that his car was “Very pointy” on the radio. Team-mate Lewis Hamilton was left frustrated after spinning off track and damaging three corners of his car. The 2008 World Champion would finish the session seventeenth after trudging back to the paddock following his accident.

Rubens Barrichello impressed despite having a high speed moment at Turn 3 half way through the session, finishing fourth fastest ahead of Renault’s Vitaly Petrov. Renault team-mate Robert Kubica struggled with grip and exited off the track through a gravel trap, finishing the session in thirteenth.

Nico Rosberg put in a good performance throughout the session finishing in sixth place, while team-mate Michael Schumacher struggled after only completing thirteen laps, the seven times World Champion would finish in twenty-third place.

Timo Glock finished the session fastest of the new teams with an impressive twelfth place time, just behind championship charger Sebastian Vettel.
