First practice for the first of to grand prix at Bahrain was driven under much higher temperature than last events. Bahrain plays host for two races before the final triple header of the season concludes in Abu Dhabi.

Lewis Hamilton topped FP1 ahead of Valtteri Bottas and Sergio Perez. Hamilton and Mercedes have wrapped up the titles but show there is still plenty to play for.

The Bahrain circuit is none for it's notorious turn 10. This is a hardpin with a hard braking zone which needs to be approached very gentle, because a bad approaches causes the front left to block and ruins the tyre very easily. It's referred to as one of the most difficult corners of the season. Peter Windsor did a nice feature about it which can be seen here.

The quickest lap time of last years FP1 was a 1:30.354 min set by Charles Leclerc in the Ferrari.
