BARCELONA, Spain -- Mark Webber was fastest in Spanish Grand Prix practice Friday as the dominating pace of Formula One leader Red Bull gave it the edge over McLaren.

Webber's lap time of 1 minute, 22.470 seconds edged McLaren rival Lewis Hamilton by 0.039 seconds at the Catalunya Circuit.

Teammate Sebastian Vettel, who has won three of the season's first four races coming in, was third ahead of Jenson Button of McLaren.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso was more than a second slower than Webber, who won here last year.
