Well after 3 weeks the Formula 1 2013 Season restarted here in Shanghai, China with a rather uninteresting Practice 1 session.

As you might have guessed the main talk was once again about the tyre degradation and many teams had problems with the front right tyre.

The session ended with the Mercedes guys locking the top of the time sheet followed by the Red Bull’s and Ferrari while Sergio Perez managed to end his session into the tyre barrier just at the pitlane entrance after carrying too much speed into that particular corner, so with no further delay here are the full results:
