Nurburgring - Practice times

Romain Grosjean was virtually unopposed in setting the fastest time in the Friday morning practice session at the Nurburgring as GP2's sixth round got underway in Germany.
Romain Grosjean set the first genuinely competitive time of GP2's German weekend at the Nurburgring, and them promptly bettered it by a second which kept competition from Jules Bianchi, Dani Clos, Luca Filippi, Charles Pic and Esteban Gutierrez at a comfortable arms-length throughout.
