BMW dominates Curitiba Warm Up

It was an all-BMW top three during the warm-up at Curitiba today. Augusto Farfus Jr. was fastest ahead of his team mates Jörg Müller and Andy Priaulx. Farfus best time was 1:24.237 which was 0.104 seconds faster than Müller. Rickard Rydell was best non-BMW-driver in fourth place in his SEAT Léon. Best Chevrolet-driver was Robert Huff in fifth position, right ahead of his team mate Nicola Larini.

Pole-man Yvan Müller was sixth fastest, 0.045 seconds behind Farfus.

Stefano D’Aste crashed his BMW heavily with only a minute left of the session at the same place that Alain Menu crashed at yesterday. D’Aste was ok while his BMW needs a lot of work before the race.

Alain Menu did not take part in the warm up because of his high-speed accident yesterday during the qualifying. There is no word yet if he will make it to the race later today, stay tuned!

The warm-up was done in dry conditions with sun and a temperature of 23 degrees.
