Alonso Massa 1-2 for Ferrari in opening practice

On a track that was wet until the waning minutes, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa were 1-2 in opening practice for the Spanish GP. To underscore how meaningless the times are, Jean-Eric Vergne was third for Toro Rosso, yet Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber were only 19th and 2 0th for Red Bull as some drivers did not have enough time to set a fast lap on a rapidly drying track.

It was only coming into the final quarter of an hour that slicks were viable, and even then there were sufficient slippery patches to limit the relevance of the laps that drivers managed.
