Free Practice 1 and 2 took place today at the Shanghai International Circuit and Hamilton had the edge. However, it looks like it will be a real battle. Find out all the happened in today's F1 Digest.
Hamilton led the way from the Ferrari boys, although the Free Practice session played out as they always do. An installation lap, a pause in the action, and then hard tyres all the way.
Once more McLaren took the lead, although not for the want of the Renaults trying. Alonso found some last minute speed to see off his team mate for second place. Oh, and Bourdais got stuck in the gravel.
Quite a few of the teams seem to think this track is not suited to their car at all, and even those who are feeling relatively comfortable say they will be studying the data long and hard overnight to try and increase their speed. Looks like this weekend means a lot to everyone.
