  • Daniel Ricciardo Red Bull Australian Grand Prix

And those two are two of the best overtakers on the grid.

German Sebastian Vettel, victor of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, was fourth for Ferrari ahead of defending champion Briton Lewis Hamilton in the second Mercedes, the two four-time title-winners.

The reigning world champion will need to make quick progress through some strong midfield runners if he wants to get in the mix at the front of the race, but he has one fewer driver to worry about passing at the start at least: Max Verstappen.

Verstappen complained about a lack of speed in his Red Bull on Friday. "That might make it a bit more hard, but it'll be more exciting too".

Australian Daniel Ricciardo put Red Bull at the top of the timesheets at the end of Friday's opening practice session for the Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix.

Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas was second in the session with Finnish compatriot Kimi Raikkonen putting Ferrari in third and making it three different teams in the top three. He escaped a grid penalty for Sunday's race and Ferrari was instead fined 5,000 euros ($6,100).

Narendra Modi lacks courage to face Cong in Parliament: Rahul Gandhi
Mr Gandhi claimed Maharashtra was given Rs 8,000 crore for drought and Gujarat Rs 3,800 crore while Karnataka got Rs 1,400 crore. "There is Mr Narendra Modi and there is Mr Amit Shah ", Gandhi told reporters at the Kolar Gold Fields in Karnataka.

Red Bull Racing's Ricciardo wasn't in the mix during the beginning of the first practice session of the weekend, but in the final 30 minutes set a lap-time of 1m31.060s to go ahead of everyone else.

I think anywhere up to P5 should be alright but we'll see. "Basically we were doing another lap to get the engine to learn a little bit more in order to optimise its settings". "That's why we know tomorrow is not going to be easy". "I think it's never happened to me before in my career, something like that".

"That was really close", said Ricciardo. "Part of me is disappointed that we are so close but still at the tail of the lead pack in Qualifying, but I don't think I could really have done much better".

In seventh was Pierre Gasly in the Toro Rosso, powered by Honda this season.

In Saturday's qualifying, but it sent with an extra 150 horsepower as Verstappen exited the second area, causing his vehiclersquo;s rear brakes to break grip using the track and also pitch him off. Vettel was fourth and Hamilton fifth. "And this track you can overtake at".

The Dutchman got out and helped marshals push the auto back to the pitlane. The Australian also spent a lot of time in the garage but did come out late for his best runs, promptly beating both Mercedes and Ferrari.
