During the session there is still no grip, which riders often wrong and went beyond the track.
The first half hour, the pilots only tested the Soft tyre, and then gradually began to switch to the simulation mode of training, pereobuchitj in Supersoft. The pace immediately asked the leader of the first practice Sebastian Vettel. The Germans managed to 0,041 seconds ahead of Valtteri Bottas. The Finn’s teammate Lewis Hamilton was not able to drive the perfect fast lap: one time he barely even managed to overtake a slow Nico Hulkenberg, after that, the radio called that “dangerous.”
Stewards also became interested in this incident and promised to conduct a full investigation, but after a workout.
Despite the fact that time Vettel was never interrupted, not everything went smoothly for the Germans in the evening training session. At some point his car simply stalled on the track. In the end, the engineers and the engineers had to work your magic on SF70H, and after a few minutes, Vettel was able to leave the pits, take on the simulation racing line in the final 30 minutes of the session. Apparently, the problems were with the electronics.
