2009 BELGIAN GP: TRULY FASTEST ON RAINNY FIRST FREE PRACTICE

Jarno Trulli, Spa Francorchamp, 2009

It's the Belgian Grand Prix, it's Spa Francorchamps, so no surprise then that the first free practice was coloured by heavy rain for much of the last hour of the session. The weather, which began to soak the Ardennes circuit after just 28 minutes of the 90, meant that only ten drivers set competitive times in that dry period. Jarno Trulli topped those times, having set his 1m49.675s lap, just moments prior to the downfall - which began at the bottom of the circuit around by Stavelot. Giancarlo Fisichella reminded Ferrari of his skill-set by going fastest of all in the wet – 2m03.972s.
