Lewis Hamilton put his troubles to one side and led team mate Jenson Button in a McLaren one-two in a wet practice for the team's 700th Formula One race at the Korean Grand Prix on Friday.

The 2008 world champion, who has been questioning his performances after five straight races without a podium finish, lapped a wet Yeongam circuit with a best time of one minute 50.828 seconds in the afternoon.

Button, winner of the previous race in Japan and chasing his sixth successive appearance on the podium, was 0.104 slower in the second 90-minute session. http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/HTEditImages/Images/15-10-11-metro20b.jpg

"I'm really struggling to get heat in the front tyres," said 2009 champion Button, whose style is notably smoother than his more aggressively steering team mate.

Mercedes' Michael Schumacher lived up to his fame as a master of wet conditions with the fastest time of 2:02.784 in the opening session.
