Hamilton, who won last weekend in Malaysia, was quickest with a time of 1 minute, 35.324 seconds at the Bahrain International Circuit, while his teammate and championship leader Rosberg was just one tenth of a second off that pace.

The best of the rest was Force India's Sergio Perez, half a second off Hamilton's time, ahead of Williams pair Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa.

Vettel ran wide onto a kerb, lost grip and spun backwards into a gravel trap, costing him any running on the softer tyre.
