Practice in Barcelona to begin on wet track
10 May 2013 – The opening practice session for the Spanish Grand Prix will begin on a wet track, with the forecasted showers falling all morning at the Circuit de Catalunya.
As teams have brought their first significant upgrade packages of the year to Barcelona, the rain will serve as a major setback, with dry mileage key to understanding wind tunnel to circuit correlation. Pirelli had also supplied an extra set of prototype Hard tyres in a bid to boost activity, but these are unlikely to be used.
The action in Barcelona gets underway at 10am local time (GMT +2).
