Hamilton leads first practice as Button makes a return

Lewis Hamilton was the fastest driver during the first ninety minutes of practice around the streets of Monte Carlo. All were pushing hard, though, with lockups and barrier brushes all over the place. Jenson Button enjoyed his first day back behind the wheel of the McLaren and was just behind his teammate in terms of pace.

Nico Hülkenberg failed to set a time in his Renault, kept in the garage as the mechanics looked for an energy recovery problem. Marcus Ericsson also lacked running with a gearbox issue on the Sauber.
