The battle of the Mercedes had its first skirmish in a few free in the Rosberg controlled perfectly Hamilton. The british was first in the first batch of work, despite the fact that he rolled with soft and German with superblandos, though in a session that was getting better little by little led to those three tenths of a difference. The Red Bull ended up behind, very close to Rosberg, but the times will vary in the second session of free with solvency.

The day began with the usual testing of tires, although in this circuit has little by the temperature difference that is marked with respect to these free. With the exception of some spinning top, like the one that had Hamilton, or a puncture of Daniil Kvyat caused by the new tires (something that has already caused problems in previous major awards) was a penalty reasonably stable and quiet.

In regards to the spaniards, Fernando Alonso just filmed what was expected and in fact the first part of the free didn’t work out. The average initial time was spent on the box, and he dedicated the rest to make different set-ups for the ‘set up’ of the car. In the end, a 18th time that little or nothing to say of the situation of the MP4-31 in this circuit. Carlos Sainz, without the problems of your partner, marked the 8th time.
