Alonso tops opening practice in Singapore

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso managed to beat the two Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to lead the opening F1 practice session for the Singapore GP. Sebastian Vettel ended up 4th but then his Red Bull lemon broke down again and he had to push his car back to the pits.

Alonso's time during the Friday track cleaning session of 1m49.056s is rather meaningless because once the track rubbers in the Mercedes will be gone.

Behind Vettel was his Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo but the two Red Bulls are about a second slower per lap and out to lunch right now.
