World Championship leader Max Verstappen comfortably topped the times in Friday's first practice session for the inaugural Qatar Grand Prix.
As the field got to grips with the Losail International Circuit, Red Bull driver Verstappen worked his way down to a time of 1:23.723 to finish just under half a second clear of AlphaTauri's Pierre Gasly.
Mercedes, waiting on a verdict over their right of review request, were third and fourth quickest with Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton respectively, as the other AlphaTauri of Yuki Tsunoda rounded out the top five.
