Ferraris dominated the first practice on Friday for the Bahrain Grand Prix, with Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa setting the best times by a huge margin over their McLaren challengers.

On a windy, hazy day with sand blowing on the 5.412-kilometer (3.363-mile) Bahrain International circuit, Raikkonen, the winner of the season-opening Australian GP, had a time of 1 minute, 33.162 seconds, more than a half-second better than Massa, 1:33.679.

Almost a second behind Raikkonen was McLaren's Lewis Hamilton with 1:34.110.

Fernando Alonso, the double world champion who won last week's Malaysian Grand Prix, followed his McLaren teammate with 1:34.161.

The best of the rest was Jarno Trulli in a Toyota at 1:34.896.
