So finally were back in europe , is the rookie Lewis Hamilton gonna keep up his awesome start to the season ? will ferrari get it together or will the mclaren guys show them how its done ?
Lewis Hamilton led the way in the opening practice session for this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix, the fourth round in the 2007 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.
The Brit finished the 90-minute session, which failed to see a single driver post a time until around 20 minutes in, four tenths up on his McLaren-Mercedes team-mate and local star, Fernando Alonso. While Lewis bolted on the medium tyres towards the end though and was the only driver to break into the 1 minute 21 second bracket, Alonso stuck with the harder Bridgestones.
After the McLarens, Kimi Raikkonen was third for Ferrari, just two hundredths of a second off Alonso, on a 1m 22.291s. The Finn did not set a time though until 40 minutes in, the Scuderia no doubt confident following their form last week during the four-day test at the Circuit de Catalunya.
