Lewis Hamilton again struggled in his Mercedes and finished 12th. In the afternoon, the British driver bids for his fourth consecutive pole position. Vettel's last pole was four races ago, at the Canadian GP.

Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne showed good form to finish fourth in mostly dry and overcast conditions.

In Friday's second practice, both Vettel and Alonso sustained punctures to their rear-right tires, putting the spotlight back onto manufacturer Pirelli.
