Räikkönen fastest as Sirotkin misses opportunity

Sergey Sirotkin was granted the chance to run in first practice for Renault, but the engine stopped before he could do more than a couple of installation laps, and he failed to set a time. Plenty of drivers were struggling for grip on the smooth tarmac, and there were spins and lock-ups galore.

Kimi Räikkönen posted the fastest time for Ferrari, but his teammate spun after hitting the kerbs hard. The Mercedes pair weren't too far off the pace with Bottas half a second up on Hamilton.
