Alexander Wurz remained the fastest man of the day at the Nurburgring on Friday in his Williams-Cosworth. For much of the session Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher duelled to be fastest with Alonso pipping Schumacher by a tenth of a second although both men will almost certainly go quicker on Saturday when the process becomes more serious.

Robert Doornbos was fourth fastest for Red Bull ahead of Honda's Anthony Davidson, Toyota's Ralf Schumacher, Honda's Jenson Button and BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica.

Renault's Giancarlo Fisichella was ninth quickest ahead of Midland's German rookie Adrian Sutil, who continued to show well.

Other teams concentrated more on their race preparation and did not bother going for quick times although Jarno Trulli failed to set a time because of technical problems.
