FRIDAY 24 MARCH, MEL­BOURNE, FREE PRAC­TICE

F1 Racing - - POWER LIST -

As a new F1 era dawns, McLaren get off to a brighter start than any­one could have hoped for. Alonso man­ages 37 laps and Van­doorne 47 over the two ses­sions, a to­tal of 84 – and a vast im­prove­ment on pre-sea­son tests dogged by un­re­li­a­bil­ity. Alonso’s best time puts him 12th in the sec­ond ses­sion and he’s six tenths faster than his team-mate – but he’s still 2.3 sec­onds off Lewis Hamil­ton’s bench­mark. You can’t have every­thing.
