Practice for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has begun at the Yas Marina circuit.

Here’s a collection of pictures from today’s practice session at Abu Dhabi.

A few livery changes are visible on the cars including a new sponsor on the nose of the Ferraris (more pictures of that here).

Also the alcohol advertising restrictions in Abu Dhabi mean some teams have had to alter the branding on their cars.

Renault have replaced their ‘Flagman Vodka’ logos with ones for ‘Bank of Moscow’.

And Force India have changed their ‘Kingfisher’ logos to read ‘Fly Kingfisher’. Team owner Vijay Mallya is chairman of both United breweries, which makes Kingfisher beer, and Kingfisher Airlines, and both have similar logos.

McLaren’s Johnnie Walker logos have been replaced with those of its parent company Diageo.

Virgin also have new sponsorship from QNet on their sidepods.
