Lewis Hamilton got his Chinese Grand Prix weekend off to a perfect start by putting up the fastest time in practice. The British driver was the quickest in both his first and second sessions this morning.
Reporter Sasha Forbes says “the 23-year-old Hamilton who is aiming to become the sport’s youngest title-holder, dominated both sessions in his McLaren Mercedes after laying down the day’s fastest time of 1 minute-and-35 seconds this morning.”
His time was nearly four-tenths of a second faster than title rival Brazilian Felipe Massa of Ferrari, who is only five points behind with two races to go. Massa was second quickest in the morning and sixth in the afternoon.
