Result: Mercedes take first practice in China, but Ferrari dominate second session

:Headline: Result: Mercedes take first practice in China, but Ferrari dominate second session:
Mercedes pair Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton set the pace in P1 in China, but Ferrari respond in the second as Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel go top.
By , Staff Reporter | 3y

Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton secured a one-two in the first practice session in Shanghai on Friday ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix, but Ferrari fought back in the second as Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel topped the timesheets.


It was a disrupted first practice as tyre failures for Williams's Felipe Massa and Renault's Kevin Magnussen resulted in the session stopping for 30 minutes.

Massa suffered two left-rear wheel failures, while Magnussen had a suspected broken left rear suspension, but the teams could not immediately confirm the problems.

On the track, Rosberg, who is the championship leader following wins in Australia and Bahrain, clocked the fastest time of 1:38.037, while his rival and teammate Hamilton was second fastest on 1:38.183.

In the second session, Esteban Gutierrez had trouble with his Haas as his rear brakes caught on fire, but the driver managed to safely return to the pits.

Rosberg clocked the quickest time on his first run-out, but it was Ferrari duo Raikkonen and Vettel who gave Mercedes something to think about as they topped the standings.

Raikkonen recorded a time of 1:36.896, while Vettel's fastest time was 1:37.005
