2010 BRASIL GP: FIRST ROUND TO RED BULL

FIRST FREE PRACTICE
Webber Champion?!? No way, I`m going to be Champion.

Vettel set the fastest time of 1:12.328 on first free practice for Brasilian GP, finishing half a second ahead of his team-mate and the McLaren duo. German team made the most of a warm track conditions to rack up plenty of mileage in order to evaluate different set-ups. Much more was expected from Ferrari duo, but they were so reserved this morning, finishing to 13 and14 position.

Robert Kubica and Nico Rosberg were once again the best of the rest in fifth and sixth, with the session's early pace setters Rubens Barrichello and Michael Schumacher seventh and eighth. The Saubers of Nick Heidfeld and Kamui Kobayashi rounded out the top 10, though the Japanese finished the session in the wall after spinning on his last lap.

SECOND FREE PRACTICE

Red Bull continued where it left off in the second session of free practice for the Brazilian Grand Prix with Sebastian Vettel once again topping the timesheets from team-mate Mark Webber. Webber was quarter of a second clear of championship leader Fernando Alonso, who was at least back at the sharp end of the time sheet following his engine problem in FP1.

Lewis Hamilton pronounced himself happy with the modifications McLaren has made to its floor and set the fourth quickest time, while team-mate Jenson Button was still complaining of a lack of rear grip and could only manage seventh.Felipe Massa set the fifth quickest time as both Ferraris vastly improved on their morning's pace, but the Brazilian's session ended half an hour early when he reported a problem with the clutch and stopped on the back straight. Robert Kubica was sixth, with Nick Heidfeld, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher completing the top 10 behind Button.
