The Chinese Grand Prix - Practice 1

Follow all the action from the first practice session of the Chinese Grand Prix from the Shanghai International Circuit as the 22 drivers get their first glimpse of the 16-corner circuit.

Famed for its high-speed straights and winding turns, it was Lewis Hamilton, in his then-McLaren, who emerged the quickest in first practice in 2012. In difficult driving conditions he clocked 1min 37.106 sec - a full second clear of this year's team-mate Nico Rosberg. The majority of the quick times came in the final 10 minutes of the session as a dry line emerged after initial cold weather.
