Webber fastest on Friday morning

Barcelona - Practice 1

It is early days, but Red Bull
already look the team to beat in Barcelona

Friday morning saw a smooth practice session in dry weather conditions. Mark Webber set the fastest time, 1.007 seconds in front of teammate Sebastian Vettel.
The Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona is the race track where most of the winter testing programme in February and March took place, therefore it is very familiar to the teams. Interestingly, Webber's fastest time on Friday morning was almost 5 seconds slower than Michael Schumacher's fastest time back in the final testing in March.

Michael Schumacher needs to up his game after his
poor start into the 2011 season

The oldest man in the field, seven time world champion Michael Schumacher, was also the most hardworking one on Friday morning, getting 32 laps under his belt.
