Link to the autosport live commentary of LAST year. http://live.autosport.com/commentary.php/id/435
According to that, it was Raikkonen for Lotus with 1m19.670s followed by Di Resta for Force India with 1m19.772s

AMUS:

11:54 Wir haben von Mercedes gerade noch einmal die Information bekommen, dass es sich bei der zuvor erwähnten Flamme an Rosbergs Heck nur um unverbranntes Benzin handelte, das sich entzündete. Es kann also vielleicht doch schneller weitergehen als befürchtet.


- so due to Mercedes the flame was just unburned fuel.

BBC F1 technical analyst Gary Anderson in Jerez
"I've had my first look in the flesh at the new Ferrari this morning and I have to say it does look like quite a nice car. It's very tidy, with lots of good-looking stuff on it. And good impressions of the McLaren continue, too. Some bits were missing at the launch last week, such as the turning vanes under the car; they've all been added now and all look effective. Those are the two cars that stand out for me at the moment. With the Red Bull, I have to say it's hard to tell any differences between it and last year's car at the moment, apart from the step on the nose and a little duct they have running through it from bottom to top. I'm not seeing a lot of stuff that looks like a big step forward, but I am on the Ferrari and the McLaren. I am told, though, there is a big rear bodywork update coming for the final test - but I haven't had that confirmed yet."
