Turkish GP: Alonso fastest as Vettel crashes
Fernando Alonso
Fernando Alonso turned the fastest lap in a wet first practice session for the Turkish Grand Prix at Istanbul.

The entire session was held in the wet and Fernando Alonso posted the fastest time of 1.38.670 in the Ferrari, ahead of the Mercedes duo of Nico Rosberg (1.40.072) and Michael Schumacher (1.40.132.)

The Renault's of Nick Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov rounded out the top-5.

Championship leader Sebastian Vettel crashed heavily at Istanbul's daunting Turn 8 corner.

The impact caused significant damage to his RB7 bearing the number 1, and he told his engineers by radio there was "some water on the exit.  There was nothing I could do".

The incident caused the 90-minute session to be red-flagged with just over 17 minutes to run.
