F1 Australian Gp – Practice One Results image

Red Bull’s new car enters the 2011 season with a significant advantage.

Webber pinches it from Vettel at the death with a 1:26.831! The Red Bulls come out on top after the first practice session of the 2011 F1 season but it was a decent outing for Mercedes, Ferrari and McLaren too.

The duo confirmed Red Bull’s impressive winter testing ahead of the new season and they held the early pace ahead of Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

Third fastest was Fernando Alonso in his Ferrari not-F150. Alonso was .918 behind Webber’s top time, but we were unable to establish the shape of his tyres.
