Alonso surprise fastest in P1
- From the section Formula 1
Ferrari's Fernando Alonso was fastest in the first practice session for the Australian GP in Melbourne, while Lewis Hamilton broke down on his first lap.
Alonso was more than half a second quicker than McLaren's Jenson Button, as pre-season favourite Hamilton's Mercedes came to grief on his first serious lap.
World champion Sebastian Vettel, who had a disastrous pre-season, was seventh fastest after running for just 10 laps in the Red Bull.
