Lewis Hamilton led the way in the first practice session of the Spanish Grand Prix weekend. The Mercedes driver was holding the fort for the team, after Nico Rosberg was left watching in the garage for the second half of the session due to technical issues on the car. Sebastian Vettel suffered at the hands of an electrical problem, his Red Bull coming to a halt out on track.

Jenson Button was putting in a strong performance, leading the way at one point and settling for second fastest overall. Pastor Maldonado lifted the spirits of the Lotus team by finishing in the top ten, at the same track he took his F1 victory at in 2012.

Friday drivers were in action with Felipe Nasr taking over Bottas' car for the first session. Giedo van der Garde was sitting in at the Sauber team, and had a brake failure that saw him narrowly missing the wall at turn one. Over at Force India, Sergio Pérez had a slightly more unusual problem when the left rear wing mirror popped off and flapped about in the wind until he returned to the pit lane.
