2012-08-31 12:50

SAUBER QUICKEST IN THE WET: In a write-off first practice session Kamui Kobayashi proved quickest in at the drenched Spa circuit.

Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi topped the time sheets during a rain-soaked first practice session ahead of Sunday's 2012 Belgian F1 GP.

The Sauber driver set a time of 2min11.389.

The pouring rain discouraged most of the top teams from spending to much time on the tarmac.

Second fastest overall was Williams' Pastor Maldonado (2min11.941), followed by Toro Rosso duo Daniel Ricciardo (2min12.004) and team mate Jean-Eric Vergne (2min12.824).
