Mercedes duo split FP1 & FP2; Renault burn

0

The Malaysian Grand Prix weekend got off to a flaming start when a new fuel system apparently caused a blaze on the Renault of Kevin Magnussen. While K-Mags was able to exit the vehicle safely, it was not a good situation for the team.

The first practice session was capped by Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg who looked to be on form but it also saw a competitive Ferrari in the hands of Kimi Raikkonen as well.

The second practice session was led by Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton as he topped the time sheets showing that he isn’t far off the pace and seems to be getting more comfortable with the car since Singapore.
