Alonso woe in Germany first practice

Fernando Alonso suffers a disastrous first practice session at the German Grand Prix as troubles with his Ferrari leave him unable to set a lap time.

Mercedes dominated the session with Lewis Hamilton 0.219 seconds quicker than team-mate Nico Rosberg, the Englishman just over a second ahead of Red Bull's Mark Webber in third.

The first German Grand Prix took place at the Nurburgring in 1951 on the famous 22.8km Nordschleife circuit, which hosted its last Grand Prix in 1976. The circuit used now, the 'new' Nurburgring, is just 5.148km long.
