Practice One in Valencia saw domination for Mark Webber. He topped the time sheet almost a whole second over Vitaly Petrov. It was an amazing comeback to Valencia for Mark after his horrific accident last year.

 

A surprise was that Sebastian Vettel, the world championship leader, was outside the top 10 is 16th position. However, he was only two seconds off the pace of his Red Bull teammate. But this didn't really count towards the race so the position in Practice didn't matter.

 

The closest tital rival was Hamilton in fourth or you could say Alonso in third. But the latter would get his revenge in the next session.
