After a wet Friday the F1 cars are finally able to get on the track for a dry running.

Fernando_Alonso-BelgianGPAs the Sun shines over the track, Alonso is also shining with it while taking the P1 in the first dry practice session of the Belgian GP. Even with the Sun up in the sky some damp patches still linger on the track making drivers life a little more exiting.

In the Sunday race Mark Webber will take a 5 place grid penalty thanks to an unscheduled gearbox change.

Alonso was followed in the top positions by former Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen and the two Saubers.
