Ali [ra] prayed five times behind his Imam, Abubakr Siddiq [ra].

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

((كان يؤدي الصلوات الخمس في المسجد خلف الصديق راضيا بامامته ومظهراللناس اتفاقه معه ووئامه معه))
الاحتجاج للطبرسي ص 53—كتاب سليم بن قيس ص203—-مرآة العقول للمجلسي ص388

“He(Ali) used to pray the five prayers in the mosque behind Al Siddeeq(Abu Bakr) and he accepted his Imamat and he showed the people that he was in agreement with him and that like liked him.”

Shia Sources:
Al Ihtijaj for al Tabrasi p53.
Kitab Salim bin Qays p203.
Mira’at al Uqool for Majlisi p388.

Update 14/08/2012:

Ali always prayed behind Abu Bakr in his life. Hence we read in al bidaya of Hafiz ibn Kathir:

فإن علي بن أبي طالب لم يفارق الصديق في وقت من الأوقات، ولم ينقطع في صلاة من الصلوات خلفه
Ali never separated from Abu Bakr Siddiq in the time of prayer, and never stopped praying behind him

Al bidaya Vol. 5, p. 249
