Good shot there of both the Martini-less Williams (notice no red and no logo) as well as the huge chunk missing on the side of Bottas' car.
Safety was of course an issue raised at Caterham by Kobayashi before it went into administration. I think a few eyes in the paddock will be looking across at the team in green this weekend on its return to the grid.
Only Stevens and Magnussen yet to set a time.
New boys Ocon and Fong currently 16th and 17th, with only Kobayashi slower so far.
@Aditya: Maybe. Rosberg will be going all guns blazing if he's in P2. But starting pole and sprinting off into the distance is surely still the most ideal strategy.
@PA: That would be a race-ending issue for any team, as aerodynamics would be so badly affected.
@Mohan: Ferrari hasn't said anything - there's some work going on in the garage on Kimi's car but he is sat in the car, suggesting things are OK.
@Anandnerusu: Force India has fallen behind McLaren in the aero war recently. There's still a chance double points could help it finish above McLaren but it would take an almighty result this weekend.
@Glen: Well remember, there's lots of things we don't know about this session, such as fuel loads etc. It's also a wing built for next year's car, not this year's.
Look at all those logos. Sign of the future for the small teams?
@RohanMehta: Bernie is always talking about the Indian GP. I think he's trying to put pressure on event organisers but it seems unlikely it will return in the next few seasons.
Vettel breaks the silence and ventures out on track.
JEV and Ocon join Vettel on track, as the world champion starts a timed lap.
@Dags: No. Our timing screen is being a bit of a rascal. We're working on that glitch.
So that's the end of Bottas' session. Interesting that Williams started this session so strongly - usually its drivers are nowhere on Fridays.
@LD: Quite a few series of Touring Cars do that. It's not very F1.
@Phil,Maidenhead: Double points for the last race? Hah, can you imagine....
Double points and double the race time. How exciting.
Kvyat slots into P5. The Russian has not scored a point since the summer break.
@CrM: Ballast is as artificial as double points or reversed grids. F1 is all about the pinnacle of technology, not adding weight to different cars.
