Senna hoping to keep Williams seat

Bruno Senna is hoping to stay at Williams in 2013. Most paddock experts are expecting the British team to keep the PDVSA-backed Pastor Maldonado on board, but pair him with Finnish rookie Valtteri Bottas. 23-year-old Bottas has impressed Williams this year as he drove Brazilian Senna's Renault-powered car during most Friday morning practice sessions.

Flying 'marbles' hurting F1 aerodynamics

'Marbles' is a sensitive topic in the formula one paddock at present. The fact this year's Pirellis leave rubber shards all over the track is well-known, but in Korea recently the phenomenon badly affected Lewis Hamilton's bid for victory. Indeed, the frong wing used by the Briton in Korea - with big rubber marbles stuck between the aerodynamic elements - was quarantined by McLaren and rolled out for deep evaluation in Indian practice on Friday.

Friday practice - Spa

Mark Webber set the pace at a Spa Francorchamps circuit affected by intermittent showers throughout the afternoon. After morning practice was largely rained off, conditions steadily improved until Fernando Alonso became the first driver to venture out on slick tyres. Alonso lowered the benchmark to a 1m53 before he was joined by his rivals on similar compounds. A frantic few minutes followed as Mercedes and Red Bull swapped positions at the top with Webber sitting pretty when the rain began to fall with forty minutes […]
