FP1 saw Mark Webber go fastest, whilst Sebastian Vettel finished way down the order in 16th. It was a morning of third drivers, with Chandhok taking the opportunity to get in the car, but failing to set a laptime, Hülkenberg crashing Di Resta's Force India, and Daniel Ricciardo being the only one to keep up with his teammate.

Free Practice 2 will likely see more of the same, as drivers figure out their new tyre compounds, and get to grips with the dirty surface of the track. 90 minutes of action will begin at 1pm GMT+1.

One to Watch
