ONE-TWO FOR BARWA ADDAX TEAM IN FREE PRACTICE SESSION AT MONZA.

GIEDO VAN DER GARDE 1st AND SERGIO PEREZ 2nd

The GP2 Series practice sessions took place today at the Autodromo Nationale de Monza in Italy. Barwa Addax Team scored a magnificent one-two in this morning's free practice session, with Giedo van der Garde setting the fastest lap time of the session and team mate Sergio Perez just behind him in second position.

Both drivers of the Spanish based team dominated the free practice session right from the start, setting the quickest times. They were able to confirm this at the end of the session, to post the two quickest times of the morning.

However. their luck ran out in the official qualification session in the afternoon with both drivers getting caught up in traffic on their flying laps, with the first set of tyres. In the second round of attempts and with the second set of tyres, Sergio Perez was affected by a red flag incident just when he was setting his fastest lap time. Giedo van der Garde had a hydraulic problem which condemned him to a long period of inactivity, so much so that he was the driver with least lap times to his name. Sergio will start from 7th on the grid and Giedo from 14th position.

Tomorrow's first feature race will be raced over 30 laps of the circuit, covering a distance of 173.481 kilometres and will start at 15.40 hrs local time.
