Manama: Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg hammered home Mercedes' early season dominance on Friday when they set the fastest times in both opening practice sessions for Sunday's floodlit Bahrain Grand Prix. Hamilton, the winner in Malaysia last weekend, clocked 1min 34.325sec in the second spell having also roared away to the leading time in the afternoon of 1min 37.502sec.

World championship leader Rosberg, who won in Australia, was in second spot thanks to a time of 1min 37.733 in the first session and, just like his teammate, was then untroubled under the lights with a time of 1:34.690.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, a three-time winner at the dusty Sakhir circuit, was third-fastest overall with 1:35.360, more than a second behind Hamilton.
