Hamilton Leads Opening Singapore Practice Session

Lewis Hamilton was the fastest man in this morning’s Friday Practice Session at the Singapore Grand Prix. The 2009 Singapore GP winner was four-tenths clear of the Red Bull duo led by Mark Webber, who occupied second and third. Nico Rosberg was fourth for Mercedes ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in fifth who was on track for the first time since being announced as Ferrari’s 2014 driver. His Lotus team-mate was a thousandth of a second behind him in sixth, whilst Kimi’s team-mate-to-be was seventh in the Ferrari. Sergio Perez was eighth, nine-tenths shy of Alonso’s fastest time, whilst Jean-Eric Vergne narrowly scraped ninth place ahead of Esteban Gutierrez who took the final top-ten time for Sauber.

Pastor Maldonado was eleventh for Williams, narrowly ahead of Ferrari’s Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas in thirteenth. Jenson Button was fourteenth for McLaren, 2.6 seconds off the Hamilton’s fastest time. The Force India duo were fifteenth and sixteenth, followed by former Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg who took seventeenth for Sauber. Daniel Ricciardo was in a disappointing eighteenth for Toro Rosso, followed by the Marussia duo in nineteenth and twentieth and the Caterham drivers in twenty-first and twenty-second.
