Hamilton set top fastest, Mercedes starts domination in Bahrain

Season dominating squad, Mercedes to continue where it left off in Malaysia. The first two fastest taken by Lewis Hamilton and his team-mate Nico Rosberg, even as reserve drivers Giedo van der Garde and Robin Frijns make first season outing for Sauber and Caterham respectively.

Robin Frijns set the first time lap in this session, followed by Giedo van der Garde, who first drives with the Sauber.

Following the first half an hour, one and all have put their best on the timesheets, without Williams’ Felipe Massa and Caterham’s Marcus Ericsson.

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg Mercedes talk on behalf of the field, followed by the always up-performing Nico Hülkenberg.

Remarkable moment than in the pits at Ferrari. Fernando Alonso steers his car out, but otherwise it stops. Few tens of meters What would it be? His F14 medium T is provided with three bands, and a soft tape. A clumsy mistake, but one that can be. Obviously quickly set right.

Finally Lotus, made some number of rounds both drivers so early in the weekend already know how to drive. Romain Grosjean made in Malaysia by finishing all that the upward trend has begun and that trend with his teammate, he seems to pull in Bahrain. Quickly they also seem not yet. The Lotus duo has to settle times in the rear.

Mercedes holds at the end of the ride onto the two fastest times, followed by Fernando Alonso and Nico Hülkenberg. Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull on behalf of Daniel Ricciardo remain still stabbing in the places ten and fourteen.
