Nico Rosberg was the early pacesetter in first practice, and he led for most of the way until teammate Lewis Hamilton pipped him towards the end of the ninety minute run. Daniel Ricciardo and Fernando Alonso were also up near the sharp end, as they continue to try and close the gap to Mercedes.

Max Chilton spun his Marussia on track, and Adrian Sutil also had a spin that ended his morning run in the barriers. Fernando Alonso followed at the same point on track as Sutil, but avoided contact and continued his lap.
