Lewis Hamilton has enjoyed an encouraging practice session ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix. Hamilton and his McLaren set the pace in both sessions at a hot and humid Sepang circuit.

Hamilton put last weekend's problems behind him by going quickest in both practice sessions.

It was a tough trip to Australia for the 2008 champion as he had his street car impounded by Melbourne police and then made an ill-advised pitstop which ruined his Australian Grand Prix last Sunday. But the Briton was back on form in Sepang, clocking a fastest time of one minute 34.175.
