Malaysian GP 2010: Hamilton Fastest In FP1

Lewis Hamilton got off to a flying start in Malaysia setting the fastest lap time in the opening practice session of the third round of the season.

The British driver, who had an up and down weekend in Australia, looked dominant along with his team mate Jenson Button who was unlucky not to keep 2nd place as Nico Rosberg stole it late in the session with a hammering run.

Michael Schumacher slotted into 4th, with Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso down in 8th.  Popular German Sebastian Vettel only managed 9th following his crash in Australia which cost him victory and points.

Home favourites Lotus were 19th and 22nd, with debutant test driver Fairuz Fauzy replacing Heikki Kovalainen and making that 22nd place.
