Lando Norris led FP1 for the Spanish Grand Prix ahead of Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz at Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya.

McLaren set a lap time of 1:14.228, with Red Bull just +0.024 behind. Ferrari was more than three-tenths of a second behind, with the Spaniard setting the fastest time on medium tires in his home race.

It was a quiet session with a momentary red flag interruption after debris was found in the middle of the track in sector two.

While the media day saw bad weather with rain on the circuit, the first day of track running was completely dry – and hot.

Due to the high temperatures, the drivers found that their Pirellis did not last as long as expected. There was a mix of high and low fuel consumption, with drivers split between using fresh compounds after the red flag stop and continuing with cleaned sets.
