Two-time Bahrain Grand Prix winner Felipe Massa led this morning’s first practice session for Sunday’s race in Sakhir with a lap of 1 minute, 34.487 seconds around the Bahrain International Circuit.
Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso, keen on continuing momentum after his dominant victory last weekend in China, was second-quickest in FP1 at 1 minute, 34.564 seconds. Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg was third on the time sheets, posting a time of 1 minute, 34.621 seconds.
Looking to get back on track this weekend, Sebastian Vettel wound up fourth-quickest for Red Bull in the opening session at 1 minute, 34.790 seconds. Paul Di Resta from Force India turned in a lap of 1 minute, 34.949 seconds, good enough for fifth place. Jenson Button, Mark Webber, Adrian Sutil, Kimi Raikkonen, and Romain Grosjean completed the Top 10.
Heikki Kovalainen returned to F1, taking over for rookie Giedo van der Garde in the session for Caterham. However, the team’s other regular, Charles Pic (1:37.850), managed to keep ahead of the more experienced Finn by six-tenths of a second. Venezuela’s Rodolfo Gonzales also got some seat time in Jules Bianchi’s Marussia, and posted a top time of 1 minute, 40.215 seconds (last place).
