Webber still leads by wide margin at lunch break
Mark Webber topped the timesheets, Fernando Alonso was responsible for a red flag and Lucas di Grassi crashed into the barriers during an action-packed morning session in Barcelona.

The battle for the fastest time in the morning turned out to be a battle between Webber and the two Nicos. Williams' Hulkenberg challenged Webber with a 1:22.684 while Rosberg posted a 1:22.514. However, the Red Bull driver hit back and was the first one to dip under the 1:21 with Rosberg settling for second and Hulkenberg for third.

The third red flag of the day was out 25 minutes before the lunch break after Lucas di Grassi sent his Virgin car crashing into the barriers at Turn 9. According to reports, he lost his back wing and then spun into the tires. He walked away without a scratch, but the same could not be said about his VR-01.

Alonso finally returned to the track once everyone was given the go-ahead following di Grassi's accident and quickly made his way to fifth place in the timesheets with a 1:24.580 just before the break.
