Barcelona - Practice times

Romain Grosjean topped the timesheets well ahead of Davide Valsecchi, in a notably quiet and subdued Friday morning practice session at Barcelona.
Romain Grosjean came out and set a time of 1:30.559s just five minutes into the half hour Friday free practice session, and the benchmark was never challenged for the remainder of the morning.

Drivers seemed content not to push too hard here having tested at Barcelona as recently as April, and instead seem to be saving themselves for the afternoon qualifying session.

Session report also available.
