    CANADIAN GP 1st PRACTICE
    Jenson Button set the early pace as F1 returned to Montreal, clocking a 1:18.127 to finish Practice One ahead of Michael Schumacher.

    With the drivers complaining of an extremely dirty track, it wasn't until halfway through the session that the big-named drivers finally ventured out. And then the battle was on to see which of the two McLaren drivers would dominate.

    Eventually it was Button who emerged ahead of his team-mate Lewis Hamilton, however, the McLaren 1-2 did not last as Schumacher nosed in, taking second place, 0.158s off the pace.

    Nico Rosberg was fourth quickest ahead of Sebastian Vettel, Robert Kubica, Fernando Alonso and Tonio Liuzzi.

    The first practice session for the Canadian GP got underway under dark skies and with the track temperature sitting at 23'C. The circuit was dry after Thursday's rain as the drivers ventured out for their installation laps, taking a first look at some of the newly resurfaced areas including the Senna S, Turn 6 and the hairpin.

    With the drivers complaining of how dirty the track is, Heikki Kovalainen liking it to "a rally Finland stage", they all headed back into the pits, waiting for someone else to start the cleaning process. Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi got the ball rolling when, more than 30 minutes into the session, he clocked a 1:28.723. Jaime Alguersuari joined the action with the two trading fastest lap times while Nico Hulkenberg took third ahead of Bruno Senna and Sebastien Buemi.

    Halfway through the session, Hulkenberg led with a 1:21.107, ahead of Kobayashi, Rubens Barrichello, Buemi, Alguersuari, Jarno Trulli, Heikki Kovalainen, Senna and Karun Chandhok. But they weren't only the top nine - they were also the only nine to have set times.

    Reigning World Champ Jenson Button was the first of the big boys to venture out, sparking a run from his rivals. Michael Schumacher immediately went quickest with a 1:19.814 before he was beaten by Lewis Hamilton by 0.106s. Button claimed fourth place, Mark Webber eighth, Nico Rosberg fourth and then Button took over the P1 slot, making it a McLaren 1-2. Felipe Massa put his Ferrari into fourth place while Fernando Alonso could only manage 13th.

    Hamilton returned to the front of the pack, breaking into the 1:18s while Schumacher went second and then lost it to Button. Alonso climbed to fourth place while Sebastian Vettel was down in 14th place. The Red Bull racer, though, improved to eighth on his next lap as slowly but surely the top four teams took over the top eight positions on the timesheets.

    With thirty minutes remaining in the session, Button claimed the P1 slot off Hamilton, Rosberg had moved to third ahead of Schumacher and Massa fifth in front of Alonso. Vettel claimed another place and Robert Kubica took eighth place while Webber had a close encounter with the Wall of Champions.

    Alonso, another to take a peek at the Wall, improved to third place but opted to check out the grass on his next lap. Vitaly Petrov was another to decide that the grass needed mowing. His Renault team-mate Kubica climbed to sixth place while Adrian Sutil broke into the top eight. Lucas di Grassi brought out the first yellow flags of the session as his Virgin broke down out on track and Pedro de la Rosa almost collected a Force India as his spun at the hairpin. Schumacher moved up to second place, 0.158s behind Button.

    The final five minutes saw Vettel improve to seventh place, Liuzzi to eighth, Schumacher ran wide, Vettel almost kissed the Wall and then ran straight on at his next attempt, Rosberg went fourth and Vettel fifth.

    CANADIAN GP PRACTICE 2

    Sebastian Vettel proved to be the man to beat in Montreal on Friday as he came back from his Turkish disappointment to set the pace.

    The Red Bull driver, who some may argue needs to make amends this weekend after his accident last time out with his own team-mate Mark Webber, clocked a 1:16.877 under overcast skies.

    Vettel, though, wasn't able to pull away from the chasing pack with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, another hoping for a better showing this weekend, just 0.086s behind the German.

    Nico Rosberg claimed third place for Mercedes GP, finishing ahead of Mark Webber, Felipe Massa and Force India's Adrian Sutil.

    Lewis Hamilton, who had quite a bit of graining on the softer rubber in the latter stages of the session, was seventh quickest ahead of 2008 Canadian GP winner Robert Kubica.

    There were cloudy skies and a track temperature of just 25'C at the start of Friday's second practice in Montreal as the drivers quickly got down to their installation laps underway when the track was green-lighted. Lucas di Grassi, who failed to set a time during the morning session after breaking down out on track, posted the afternoon's first time, a 1:30.035. But he wasn't the only driver setting times early and soon lost out to Nico Hulkenberg, Vitaly Petrov, Kamui Kobayashi, Rubens Barrichello and Bruno Senna.

    Petrov climbed to the top of the timesheets while Lewis Hamilton took third place on his first attempt before he was dropped a position by his team-mate Jenson Button. Robert Kubica was the next to lead the way and then Hamilton with the Brit clocking a 1:18.421. In sharp contrast to the morning session where just eight drivers set times in the first 45 minutes, the afternoon had 15 drivers making their mark before the first ten minutes were even concluded.

    Button was the next to take the P1 slot, a 1:17.961. Felipe Massa went fourth quickest, ahead of Barrichello, Petrov and de la Rosa. Adrian Sutil, Tonio Liuzzi and Hulkenberg made up the early top ten. Nico Rosberg overhauled Button at the front with Hamilton and Liuzzi slotting in behind him. Michael Schumacher improved to third place as Massa took fourth and Sebastian Vettel fifth.

    After the early rush it was back into the pits for most of the drivers to evaluate the data gathered with just a handful of cars, including the two Red Bulls, putting in the mileage. Vettel slotted into second place while Mark Webber took fourth before they too returned to the pits.

    Back out on track, Rosberg lowered his benchmark time to a 1:17.151. Fernando Alonso improved to third place behind Vettel. Meanwhile Jarno Trulli remained stuck in his garage as Lotus continued to make repairs to his car. The Italian was the only driver not have set a lap time.

    The two McLaren drivers were some of the first to switch to the softer option tyres but it did nothing to help their lap times with Hamilton remaining fourth and Button ninth. Vettel, though, didn't have the same problem, taking first place with a 1:16.877. Massa was the next to try the softer rubber and he improved to third before being dropped as Webber took third place. Alonso climbed to second place, 0.086s off the pace.

    Trulli finally set a time with 15 minutes on the clock, taking 22nd place while drivers who had been out on the soft tyres for a number of laps complained of graining. As such there were very few drivers who improved their lap times as the clock counted down, eventually ending with Vettel in the P1 slot ahead of Alonso.

    Times
    01. Vettel Red Bull-Renault 1:16.877 32 laps
    02. Alonso Ferrari 1:16.963 + 0.086 35 laps

    Re: FORMULA 1 2010

    THREE things have to be considered,

    1) Ferrari's appreance before the World MotorSport Council on September 8 2010 following its controversial breach of Formula 1’s team orders rule in the German Grand Prix.

    There are possiblities of docking of Points for Ferrari, which will reduce their points considerably.

    2) The FIA is to introduce more stringent load tests on front wings at the Belgian Grand Prix later this week in an attempt to settle the flexi wing controversy that is causing increasing paddock disquiet. The two cars which adopt flexi wings more than the specified limits of FIA are Red Bull Racing & Ferrari. If these wings fail the test how competative will be Red Bull Racing & Ferrari against Mclaren, have to be seen.

    3) How much have Mclaren developed their Exhaust blown diffuser. How competative are they going to be.

    All the above said will influence the outcome of this years world championship. Fingers crossed. :confused
