Kobayashi and Schumacher are battling for P1 on a drying track. They are both rookies on this track. it is dark now at 19:00 h local time.

Massa almost hits the wall. He is on dry tires.

Only RBR from the top teams have made an effort to set a quick time on a drying track. Webber was the last out and used the last lap to good effect.

FP2 will be more informative as the track will be dry by then.

Hm ..button was pushing ...no doubt about it.
For sure they were evaluating the new bits back to back as well..but still..

Nick Heidfeld is already on the same pace as Kobayashi after 18laps...pretty impressive..even though we have to weigh up track learning for Kamui vs car/tyre learning for Nick. I feel this will be entertaining to watch .Hopefully Sauber have enough Front wings and wishbones brought to singapore... :mrgreen:

Maybe it's just me, but I think this is just the reason they made up to let Klein race in order to keep all their sponsors happy.

I agree x10. Seems fishy, especially since they said he may not get better by the enxt race.

Why would they have to do that, he signed as a reserve they knew this so this would most likely be a genuine sickness no mirrors behind it. Nick just seems to be getting familiar with the car and its characteristics right now.

Then what to say about Jeröme d'Ambrosio ? Practically same time as experienced Glock in his first session in F1 and on a circuit he never driven before. Now thats impressive. =D>

Live reactions:

- Timo Glock gives commentary on a full lap in slow pace - that's new :D
- Jenson's engine has the weirdest off-throttle farting sound
- Sutil's left front suspension becomes the first true victim of the Singapore Sling after flying through the chicane.

Actually, Sutil is rubbish. To be fair, it's a killer corner. :twisted:

I would not question the team if they put Chandhok back in the car. Chandhok has so much more experience with the car than Klien. If HRT wants good results, Chandhok would most likely be the person to deliver. The fact that they have been switching drivers all year seems like just a financial thing rather than performance issues.

Yup. The rain in the earlier session spiced things up a bit. I'm hoping we get rain (or at least a wet track, which we now know takes hours to dry up) during qualifying or the race, so that this race isn't just another 61 parade laps of Singapore's streets.
