The Lynk & Co Cyan Racing drivers got a tough start to the FIA World Touring Car Cup finale at Sepang in Malaysia.
Andy Priaulx was fastest of the four team-mates in 20th position, 1,5 seconds from the fastest time, with Thed Björk in 25th, Yvan Muller in 26th and Yann Ehrlacher in 29th.
"It was a tough start, we are lacking top speed it seems. But we will of course work very hard to improve ahead of the second session," said Thed Björk.
The second and final free practice session of the weekend starts at 12:45 local time / 05:45 CET.
