Spanish Grand Prix
In Malaysia Q1 there was just 0.826 seconds between front runner Rubens Barrichello and 15th place drop zone marker Sebastien Bourdais, so you could understand Massa mistakenly thinking that he could safely stay in the pits and save a set of tyres for later. But how did Ferrari again fail to get out of Q1 in Spain?
The first day of practice at the Spanish Grand Prix ended Button topping practice 1 and Rosberg leading practice 2. There were no major incidents except for the brake fire on Buemi’s Torro Rosso and a few people including Nelson Piquet slithering off the track. Rosberg apparently running out of petrol in the last few seconds of the day’s seconds practice session, disappointed several drivers on their final fast lap of the day.
