Hamilton on top in Malaysia

Who ended up where in the first practice in Sepang?

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton found his way to the top of the charts in Sepang, ending any doubts he might have had about damages to his Melbourne.

The sessions saw a variety of fast drivers, most notably Kimi Raikkonen ending up second overall, only a tenth-and-a-half off the Brit's time.

The Williams pairing of Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas ended up ninth and tenth respectively, about a second off the pace.

The defending manufacturers champion Red Bull Racing took up the seventh spot in Sebastian Vettel and twelfth in Daniel Ricciardo.

Both Lotus Renault cars were unable to make time, as well as the Force India of Sergio Perez.

Rounding out the top five for the first of two practice sessions going on today in Malaysia was Nico Rosberg in third, and the McLaren duo of Jensen Button and Kevin Magnussen taking fourth and fifth respectively.

Practice two gets underway shortly from the Sepang Circuit.
