Britons Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button suffered technical issues on the first day of Formula One’s final pre-season test in Jerez.

Both men failed to get out on track in the afternoon, Hamilton having managed 48 laps in his Mercedes before an issue with his energy recovery system, and Button’s day ended after only seven laps following a hydraulic leak.
