    19 of the 20 drivers have already been out - just Verstappen (fresh from his second Grand Prix victory) yet to leave the pits

    Vet's car carries out its stability behaviour from singapore.
    Very small correction in the corner but there's noticeable tail slide at low gears. Hope they'll sort it out in the end of FP1.

    Incredible pace in these early stages. Last year's pole position time? 1:30.647. 2017's benchmark so far? 1:29.541...

    Bottas is told that rain is expected in 10 to 15 minutes with 45 minutes still to go.

    Malaysia is more planted. It's more like early Singapore FP1. But the latest onboard showed a little setup change and felt more like Malaysia. If there's no car ahead, Seb should have set the best time.

    0.045 seconds behind on a slower tyre. So far so good. Fingers crossed this is legitimate pace!

    "Ignore any brake alarms for now, Kimi," is the message to Raikkonen

    "We need some lift off for the brakes, we're hot on rears," he is now told

    Vettel looked very good, i assume he is running lighter than Ham & kimi, since kimi is 0.4s off his pace

    We have a very solid car. Let's now hope for dry FP2 and we could run race sim smoothly.
