Friday: Rosberg tops in Spain

It must be practice. Nico Rosberg once again topped the charts on Friday as cars hit the track in Barcelona, as he and teammate Kazuki Nakajima finished 1-2 in the second session.

Rosberg's time of 1:21.588 bested Jenson Button's morning mark of 1:21.799 to take best of day honors, though the German rolled to a stop on the circuit at the end of the session.

Also topping Button's morning time were Nakajima and Fernando Alonso, the Spaniard finished third.

It was Button, Jarno Trulli and Robert Kubica in the morning session.

It's hard to tell anything from practice times, but for all the talk of a new start in Europe, it looks the usual suspects so far. Of course, that might all change tomorrow in qualifying.
