SEPANG (AFP) - Mercedes underlined their superiority in the new Formula One season as first Lewis Hamilton and then Nico Rosberg led the timings in the Malaysian Grand Prix practice sessions on Friday.

The British 2008 world champion topped the opening session with his German team-mate third, and it was Rosberg, winner the season-opener in Australia, who took control in the later run-out.

Both drivers carried the message, "#TributeToMH370", on their cars as the country mourns 239 people presumed dead in a disappeared Malaysia Airlines passenger jet.

Sunday's race will be preceded by a minute's silence.
