Russian GP Practice 1: Rosberg fastest

Nico Rosberg impressed in the first free practice session for the 2016 Russian Grand Prix as he set the fastest time on Friday morning.

The Mercedes driver is bidding to make it four wins out of four this season and extend his lead over team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the drivers’ championship.

In FP2, the onus will be on Hamilton to surpass Rosberg ahead of Saturday’s qualifying. The German was on pole in Sochi last year, though, and it was the reigning champion who came out on top, but an improved time in the second practice session would certainly improve his outlook of doing so again.
