First Practice 1 & 2: In 100 Words

First practice in Australia certainly had plenty of talking points. It was three time world champion Lewis Hamilton who set the pace, finishing fastest in both sessions. It was a case of two differing sessions from Ferrari, as they were beaten by Red Bull in the first test, before Vettel finished just behind Hamilton in the second. There was a number of incidents, with Palmer ditching his car into the wall at turn 16, while Verstappen had a trip into the gravel. The midfield battle looks interesting, with lots of cars performing differently throughout the day. On to FP3 and qualifying!
