Formula 1: Mark Webber Fastest in 2010 Korean Grand Prix Practice

Australian Formula 1 World Championship favourite, and current leader, Mark Webber of Red Bull has put down another marker for his rivals in today’s 2010 Korean Grand Prix practice session, where he set the fastest time of 1 minute, 37.942 seconds.

His closest championship rivals had different fortunes: Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was under 0.2 seconds behind the Australian in second place, while fellow Red Bull man, Sebastian Vettel, finished in seventh following a puncture in the second practice session. Both men sit 14 points behind Webber in equal second for the 2010 title.

The next man in the Championship, was the next fastest today: Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain, who topped the first practice time sheet, came in third fastest of the second 0.14 seconds down on Alonso in his McLaren Mercedes machine.

Current World Champion, Jenson Button, also of McLaren, placed fifth behind the consistently overachieving Renault man, Robert Kubica. Button will be hoping for a better qualifying and race than he has managed to put together all season if he is to retain any sort of hope of keeping his title this term.
