Spa: Schumacher tops wet Practice 1 (PVM) Wet and miserable would best describe the weather on the opening morning of the Belgian Grand Prix weekend at Spa-Francorchamps, rendering any running in the ninety minutes meaningless while claiming a number of rookies out.
Just short of the hour mark, Renault debutant Bruno Senna slammed the barrier exiting turn nine which brought joy to the heart of Nick Heidfeld who was laughing like hell..
About 15 minutes later, Paul di Resta also lost it out of nine slamming the barriers, but this time prompting a red flag situation.
Early on Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg set the early pace and remained top of the timing screens because the rain started to pound down about ten minutes into the session and thus precious track time went down the drain.
