It was a very cloudy and overcast start to the Brazilian GP weekend but no rain just yet.
It was a very wild session with cars unable to find grip on the newly re-surfaced circuit.
Daniel Juncadella, who was driving Sergio Perez's Force India, crashed into the barriers with a half hour remaining in the session. The car was heavily damaged, forcing Perez to sit out Free Practice 2.
Jenson Button had an ERS issue and Esteban Gutierrez was having trouble with the power unit on his Sauber. Neither of them set a time in this session.
There was quite a few spins and lock-ups as well, including a spin from Max Verstappen who was driving Vergne's car. He'll be on Toro Rosso's driver line-up next year while Kvyat heads to Red Bull to fill Vettel's seat.
The other reserve driver in this session was Felipe Nasr, in Bottas's Williams. Nasr will be driving for Sauber next year, alongside Marcus Ericsson.
