Hamilton fastest in first practice

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton was fastest in this morning’s first practice session for the Spanish Grand Prix.

He was followed by team-mate Jenson Button and an apparently rejuvenated Michael Schumacher, perhaps buoyed by the chassis change his team have implemented for this weekend.

The Red Bulls of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel were fourth and fifth fastest, respectively.
