In what was a frustrating session the Williams Martini team would see their drivers finish in 2nd and 3rd in the opening Friday practice for the 2017 Chinese GP. It was a session that saw both Williams drivers completing a handful of laps with Felipe Massa finishing ahead of team-mate Lance Stroll. It would be 45 minutes into the session before the cars were able to run. It was a session where not a lot was learnt by the Williams team.

The Williams drivers would both run a combination of full wet and intermediates during the shortened session. The session would take forty five minutes before it got underway with both Williams drivers setting their quickest time on the intermediate tyres.
