Atrocious weather conditions affected the first day's running of the A1 Grand Prix of Nations at the Circuito Estoril but that didn't stop A1GP Team France with Alexandre Premat at the wheel from topping the timing monitors in both offical event practice sesssions.

"Conditions were very difficult during the shakedown and practice sessions," said Premat at the end of the day.

"For session one the track was bit wet and dry, which made it difficult sometimes, but I did a good time with the new tyres. In the second session we did a lot of work on the wet set-up, the car has not been good in the wet, the team did a really good job and now it is now much better. I am confident for qualifying tomorrow, although a lot of work still needs to be done."
