Button set tops first practice, McLaren lead, as Buemi had a huge crash



Jenson Button set fastest on first practice session in Shanghai. He is the fastest of the session, ahead of Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton, M Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel. Alonso’s Ferrari bad feel for engine failure and then Buemi had a huge crash when his wheels flew off luckily he’s in good health.

Among ambient temperature at 15°C, it was a cool morning of performance for all who turned up at the Shanghai; but, just being at the track was a bonus for some team members subsequent instants of intense panic over the course of the last 24 hours due to European flight cancellations, all down to the now notorious cloud of volcanic ash which makes its way across from Iceland. Back on the track, exterior temperatures ultimately get to 29°C (84°F) on a dry and bright morning although rain is predictable to hit the venue on race day. For the first time this season, Lotus were not first out of the pits on Friday as Force India reserve driver Paul di Resta (Vitantonio Liuzzi’s) car – was first to go by the green light.

By all bystanders intimately watching the McLarens – whose f-duct system is predictable to result in a clear advantage on Formula 1’s longest straight – Lewis Hamilton lead the timesheets for part of the session while Button finally recorded the best time of 1:36.677, just 98 thousandths of a second earlier than his team-mate and 71 thousandths up on Nico Rosberg, who controlled to slot his Mercedes works car among the two Working cars to make sure an all Mercedes-powered top three.
