Hello and welcome (or welcome back) to our live coverage of practice for the Monaco Grand Prix, coming to you on a Thursday for the first and only time this season.
Hamilton topped FP1 but the real star was a certain Mr (or is it Master?) Verstappen, finishing second on his first morning driving around the Monte Carlo circuit.
Just to whet your appetite a bit, there's our morning report for you.
So what can we expect in FP2? Well, some supersoft running for a start. This is the session where track conditions will theoretically mimic qualifying the best, so the teams conduct their low-fuel flying laps on the softer tyre.
The air temperature has stayed around the 14 degrees mark this afternoon, though track temperature has increased to 22. The session this morning started on intermediate tyres due to damp from overnight rain - no chance of that happening again this afternoon.
@M_mIsH5: That's right. That moment changed the whole complexion of the race and ended with Button behind Trulli for the whole race unable to get by.
Expect to see the order mixed up this afternoon from the morning timing screen. The balance shifts slightly on the supersoft tyre compared to the soft tyre.
Rosberg, who finished down in ninth in FP1, heads straight out there. He has another lock up at that Mirabeau corner he made so infamous last year but keeps it away from the run off area.
There's a threat of rain later in this session with clouds gathering and that explains the early flurry of cars joining the track.
Vettel goes into P1 with a 1:19.733 as team-mate Raikkonen bails it out in the Turn 1 run off area.
Raikkonen in P23, seven tenths down on Vettel.
@MichaelBialocur: That's a good question. Naturally, they are better as the development curve is still going up - this new formula is only a year and five races old, after all. Sometimes conditions of sessions need to be taken into account but that's one I'll have a look at and think about this afternoon and tomorrow during the day off!
Maldonado is off at Mirabeau now, looks like he went well too deep into that corner.
@M_mIsH5: My credentials as a weatherman are falling apart!
Speaking of Verstappen, he's moved into P3 early on - half a second off Vettel's early benchmark.
"Jesus, every lap there's traffic!" Hulkenberg complains.
"Yep. Rosberg keeps slowing down ahead, and we're not building tyre temperatures like this."
Sainz shows anything Verstappen can do, he can do, too. He leaps into P1 with a 1:18.772, The track getting quicker and quicker again.
Vettel the latest to run very deep into the Mirabeau escape road.
@M_mIsH5: Schumacher won in 1999.
Button complaining about wheel spin through the final corner. Similar complaints to his gripes in Spain...
As you were then as Rosberg goes P1....
...Before Hamilton takes P1 from his team-mate by three tenths of a second.
@mfbull: He's out there now. Anyone with a TV feed should look out for him - majestic beard and a lot more hair than me.
Looks like Ferrari PU issues for Ericsson. His car is in the Sauber garage and doesn't look like it's going anywhere fast.
@Phoenix: Impossible to predict. His name will probably be a hindrance to him - much like Bruno Senna, people will expect huge things from him. Winning in German Formula 3 is good but there are much bigger series he needs to step into. He doesn't seem to be a can't-miss talent like Verstappen, who basically was so good Red Bull couldn't pass up on him.
@MichaelBialocur: Yep, and yet it's probably the drivers' favourite circuit! Proof F1 isn't just about pure speed.
