On the first day of track action in Shanghai the big talking points were Pastor Maldonado’s off-track adventures and Marco Mattiacci’s first day as Ferrari team principal.

Here are the highlights from Twitter.

There were plenty of Brazilian flags in the grandstands to support Williams, with Felipe Massa and test driver Felipe Nasr on driving duties in the morning session.

A few drivers struggled on the cold and green track.

Practice 2

After a spin in first practice, Maldonado crashed at the pit entry in the second session. The off was reminiscent of Lewis Hamilton’s in the 2007 Chinese Grand Prix.

After the action

After the resignation of Ferrari Team Principal Stefano Domenicali on Monday, his replacement was on the pit wall for the first time.
