  • Lewis Hamilton issues warning with strong Chinese Grand Prix practice showing

Max Verstappen believes Red Bull still has work to do over one lap if it is to make the most of its strong race pace in China.

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain gets into his vehicle during the first practice session for the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit in Shanghai, Friday, April 13.

Several other drivers spun or went off the track as they tested the limits, with the cool and blustery conditions catching them out.

"It has been a good day", said Hamilton.

"Although we missed a little bit of track time this morning, I'm feeling quite comfortable in the auto, the balance feels good so if we can improve on certain areas overnight we could be fighting at the sharp end of the midfield battle again". "We were there two races but it's no good having maybe the fastest vehicle if we're not winning with it", said Ricciardo. I was happy with that and the auto was behaving quite well there.

Ahead of the qualifying simulation runs, it was Raikkonen and Hamilton who set the very early pace on the soft tyres with a tenth between them.

There is no pressure on the SIT. "Police waale (police men - perhaps the security personnel of the lawmaker) were standing there". He had also dismissed the complainant as belonging to "low status". "This is a conspiracy by criminals", Sengar told reporters.

"Ferrari are still quite quick".

Between the Red Bulls were Nico Hulkenberg, Kevin Magnussen and Carlos Sainz as both Renault and Haas again looked like being the front-runners in terms of the remaining points positions, with all three getting within a second of Hamilton's time. "But, it's good to see all the times so close".

The winners of the opening 2 races, Ferrari ended day 1's practice session hot on pacesetter Mercedes' heels.

Vettel also said that he does not think Ferrari have been particularly smart on their way to back-to-back victories in 2018, just that their preparation has been spot on.

Also, for the third straight race weekend, there was an unsafe release to bring the safety into question once again. So, I think tomorrow is going to be a close qualifying and then Sunday as well. "So I changed the mapping and in second practice it was good".

One of the most popular assumptions since the start of last season is that Ferrari's auto appears to deal better with higher temperatures, but cool temperatures are more suited to Mercedes. The auto, even though it was quick, it wasn't easy to drive at all. I think if we do our homework, if we get the auto balance right and we get everything together, then it should be a good weekend.
