Australia GP: Webber tops practice 1 Mark Webber and Red Bull were fastest in opening free practice for the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne. Webber's 1m26.831s, set on a new set of Pirelli's hard 'prime' tires on the final lap of the session ensured he fired an early shot to Vettel - the German ending up some 0.0327s behind after a late run of his own.
Ferrari's Fernando Alonso was third fastest, more than half a second behind Vettel, and ahead of Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg in 4th.
These times are largely meaningless because the track was green and dusty in the first session.
