Webber ousts Alonso

Apart from the occasional spot of rain, the weather held off for the both practice sessions of the German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring, so the teams were able to work according to plan on their setups, tyre comparisons and general race preparations.

The only major difference between FP1 and FP2 was that Mark Webber ran what appeared to be a qualifying simulation, posting a time of 1:31.711 minutes, which was also the fastest lap of the day.
