The Williams drivers were locked together too with Felipe Massa leading teammate Valterri Bottas for sixth and seventh. The closest-matched teammates were McLaren’s Kevin Magnussen and Jenson Button, who were eighth and ninth fastest. Jean-Eric Vergne completed the top 10 for Toro Rosso.

In the opening round of practice, Alonso outpaced the Mercedes duo of Hamilton and Rosberg to lead the way. The Ferrari ace led the way with a best time of 1:17.238. Vettel was fourth fastest behind the top three, followed by Bottas in fifth.
