It was Lewis Hamilton versus Nico Rosberg for the majority of the session, although the former was struggling to keep his car on track occasionally. During the final few moments of practice, Fernando Alonso popped up to P1, and although Hamilton looked set to beat the Spaniard to the top spot, Lewis locked up and missed out by 0.016 seconds.

Meanwhile, Nico Hülkenberg spun causing no damage to his car, but some confusion when Kevin Magnussen drove off track to go round him. Jules Bianchi stopped out on track after brushing up against the wall. Felipe Massa also had a difficult first session, sitting out much of it in the garage after an ERS pump failure.
