Austria - FP1: The first session of the weekend was dominated by Chevrolet, with Yvan Muller breaking his 2012 qualifying lap record by over 1.0s.

Muller ended the session P1, followed by Huff, Nash, Chilton, Gabriele (+0.856), MacDowall, Oriola and Tiago (+1.082) in 8th. The Zengo Motorsport Civic of Norbert Michelisz suffered damage mid-way through the session, and Norbert only completed 9 laps for P12. The session was stopped when Yvan Muller span in the third sector on a flying lap, although his Chevrolet suffered no damage. On the restart, Muller posted the best lap of the session, nearly 0.6s ahead of P2 man Huff. The all-important qualifying comes up at 15:00 (CET). Will Muller continue his dominant form?
