FP1:

·      Ricciardo was sidelined when he was running fourth fastest by parking his car against the barrier and damaging the front suspension.

·      McLaren turned up with a major upgrade of the front wing and it seems to have worked quite well.

·      Robert Kubica drove Sirotkin’s car during the session and it looks like he wasn’t able to get much out of the car either!

GRID:

Hartley set no time and so officially did not qualify, but I suspect the stewards will allow him to start based on his practise performance – even though that wasn’t particularly good!!
