Adrian 3rd fastest in FP1, Liuzzi 7th

Both Sutil and Liuzzi took 15 laps each of the 5.073km circuit in the 90-minute session, which began in wet conditions due to heavy rain shower just before the practice.

The Force India drivers tried the new high downforce aero tweaks introduced this weekend on the intermediate tyres.

When the weather condition got better, the duo completed their final runs of the practice on the prime tyres.

Mark Webber set the fastest time of 1:54.589 in his 10 laps ahead of Mercedes' Michael Schumacher (+0.119secs).

Both Sutil (+0.238secs) and Liuzzi (+0.921secs) were within a second behind Webber's timing.
