Hamilton tops first practice at Turkey

By on
F1 Grand Prix, GP Turkey, Istanbul Parktr

It has almost become a habit for Lewis Hamilton, but he has once again topped the timesheets in the first free practice for the Turkish Grand Prix. His teammate Jenson Button was second fastest, ahead of the Mercedes cars.

Red Bull has a rather calm Friday morning. Earlier practices show the team is not looking for quick times on Friday, hence not displaying their true pace.

At HRT Sakon Yamamoto was behind the wheel in favour of Christian Klien. The team again suffered several technical problems on its cars, but nothing serious enough to keep the cars in the pitlane for a long time.
