Adam Carroll has set the pace at his home race with a time of 1:34.067, just ahead of Scott Speed and Gianmaria Bruni

Carroll Fastest in Practice

Carroll claimed the time just before the conclusion of the session, driving impressively quickly on well used tyres. With conditions slightly overcast but warming, the pace was quick on the outset, and Bruni topped the early times with a lap of 1:34.549.

Speed, not to be outdone, came back with a time two tenths faster, and looked set to keep the top spot until two minutes before the end, when Carroll's name flashed onto the screens just above the American, who ran out of fuel in the closing minutes.

Hiroki Yoshimoto, second in race two last week in France, was the last man on track as he team tinkered with his car, but was finally able to get out for a trouble free run. The same could not be said for his teammate Ernesto Viso, who suffered a number of spins throughout the session.

As usual the times were remarkably close between most of the drivers, with one second splitting the first eleven and two seconds covering 22 of the 24 cars on the grid.
