#BelgianGP #FP1 final: ROS – HAM – ALO – BUT – RAI – PER – MAG – HUL – RIC – BOT – #DK26 P12 – #JEV25 P16. http://t.co/AOXVPIw0KI

I bet Max Chilton wished he had his own personal crisis management/PR team now. Not the team’s job to sort out this mess #f1

And Alex Rossi was 20th in what, it turns out, will be his only appearance for the weekend. Max Chilton will be back in the car for FP2.

Rosberg heads Mercedes one-two in first practice: http://t.co/EBxTZ5vhwv #F1

@philbranagan Am I allowed to compare your performance to that of other Australian journalists?

The old boy’s not happy, won’t be pulling any chicks today. http://t.co/cmQWISQsTv

No surprises with Mercedes and Ferrari leading the way. Positive morning for McLaren as well, with Button fourth and Magnussen seventh. #F1

Not only did Rosberg set the pace, but he also had the most productive morning as well with 25 laps under his belt. #F1
End of FP1 and a good job by our team this morning. 46 laps on the board, both drivers completing their programmes cleanly. #FeelTheForce

That’s your lot for #FP1! @nico_rosberg P1 (1:51.577, 25 laps) @LewisHamilton P2 (1:51.674, 24 laps) #F1 #BelgianGP #SPArksWillFly

Sutil makes one last improvement, moving from 15th to 14th with a 1m53.703s. #F1

Just a few mins remaining in #FP1 – longer runs on the agenda – expect no stellar times before the flag… #F1 #BelgianGP #SPArksWillFly

Red Bull has confirmed Vettel’s issue is a burnt exhaust. #F1

Alonso emerges from the pits for one last go at the Mercedes. #F1

Nothing too much changing in terms of positions as the session winds down. #F1

Kvyat on the radio: “The brake efficiency at Turn 5 on the previous lap was very poor. I couldn’t stop.” #F1

@MercedesAMGF1 @LewisHamilton Mini twerk? Report yourself to the social media stewards.

Vettel is out of the car and has ended his running for FP1 with an engine issue. #F1

Bottas with two personal best sectors (one and three), but he can’t quite break into the 52s bracket. #F1
@Jaames08 something to get heat into the tyres?

Just a lil’ mini-twerk from @LewisHamilton through Eau Rouge – masterfully held as you’d expect #WiggleWiggleWiggleWiggle #F1 #FP1

Hamilton loses the rear end of his Mercedes going up Eau Rouge, but recovers the car to avoid contact with the barriers. #F1

Vettel the last driver in the pits. #F1

Bernie Ecclestone is back in F1 paddock for the first time since settling Munich court case. Here are his thoughts http://t.co/llSBphYCiY

A little over 10mins to go – we hear V6 Hybrid Turbo’s rumbling… yes! @LewisHamilton heads out, @nico_rosberg follows. Game on! #F1 #FP1

The track is getting busy now. All bar four drivers are running. #F1

Hamilton back on track, perhaps to have a crack at his team-mate’s P1 time. He needs to find just under a tenth. #F1

We here a V6 Hybrid Turbo a-rumblin’… #F1 #BelgianGP #SPArksWillFly #FP1

You can be sure it was the last thing on this earth Marussia bosses wanted to do. No-one comes out of it looking good #f1
