Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso of Spain drove the fastest lap in Friday's practice session for the German Grand Prix. The afternoon session was held in much drier conditions after the wet run in the morning, and drivers were about 10 seconds faster.

Alonso, who was 19th in the morning, bounced back to clock 1 minute, 16.265 seconds in the afternoon, showing that Ferrari may be capable of challenging McLaren and Red Bull on the Hockenheimring circuit.

Sebastian Vettel of Germany prevented a 1-2 for Ferrari by taking second in his Red Bull with a best lap of 1:16.294. Felipe Massa of Brazil was third in his Ferrari in 1:16.438, while the second Red Bull, driven by Mark Webber of Australia, was fourth. Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, lagged behind in their McLarens.
