The first practice session of the 2014 F1 season was quite special. Fernando Alonso was the first to go out for Ferrari to set the first lap of the season.
Australian F1 GP favourite Lewis Hamilton unfortunately had the first car that breakdown. After only 12 minutes his Mercedes W05 stop at turn 9 and was smoking. Despite fears about car reliability and it was Mercedes who looked the most reliable during wintertesting, it was the F1 car that broke down this session.
Both Caterham and Lotus drivers and Jules Bianchi of Marussia didn't set a lap time.
Alonso's time difference of more then 0,5 sec with Button shows us that the Ferrari F14 T is very competitive.
