Barrichello again faster than Button

In what has become commonplace since mid-year accusations that the Brawn team were favoring his British teammate, Rubens Barrichello topped Brawn teammate and title rival Jenson Button to the fastest time in the opening free practice session for the Singapore Grand Prix.

Mark Webber and Sebastian were third and fifth for Red Bull, split by Fernando Alonso's Renault in fourth.

The changes to the track since last year resulted in lap times five seconds slower than in the same session last year.
