Lewis Hamilton top in Japanese GP first practice

Second practice is live on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra at 06:00 BST

Lewis Hamilton set an imposing pace as Mercedes impressed in first practice at the Japanese Grand Prix.

The world championship leader was 0.446 seconds quicker than team-mate Valtteri Bottas – and 0.682secs quicker than Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo in third place.

Hamilton was using softer tyres than Bottas – but earlier in the session had been just 0.183secs slower than the Finn using tyres one step harder.

Hamilton also narrowly avoided a huge crash with Toro Rosso’s Pierre Gasly.
