Team Germany may be missing star driver Nico H????lkenberg but it was more or less business as usual for them with Christian Vietoris in the car instead.

The rookie in his first A1 Grand Prix outing lines up second behind veteran Alex Yoong, and only around 0.4s per lap off the Malaysian’s pace. Britain’s Oliver Jarvis, racing in A1 for the second time this season, is third ahead of home hero Salvador Duran.

But New Zealand’s hopes of capitalising on H????lkenberg’s absence look dashed already. Jonny Reid languishes down in 14th, an average of 1.1s per lap off the pace.
