Not a typical practice session this morning in Melbourne when rain struck much early than anticipated disrupting all teams running program.

If yesterday was Mercedes having reliability issues today we saw Sebastian Vetter’s RB9 pulling off with a hydraulic failure of some sort while McLaren find itself in trouble again having all kinds of problems with their new MP4-28.
