  1. Post update

    Romain Grosjean reports a loss of power and dives back into the pits. That’s possibly a disappointing end to what has been a good day for him.

  2. Post update

    Valtteri Bottas runs wide at Turn 12 and kicks up a load of gravel onto the track – something for the other drivers to keep an eye on with 10 minutes of the session remaining.

  3. Post update

    “Both axles, zero grip,” reports George Russell. “It is like driving on ice!”

    Russell is propping up the timesheet with 1:19.391. He’s two tenths slower than the next slowest time.

    I think he was having more fun in P1 when he was part of the pit crew.

  5. Post update

    Lewis Hamilton continues to hold the fastest lap time with the 1:16.883 set midway through the session. He’s currently on a long run on mediums, while Valtteri Bottas is on the hards for his race sim.

    Long runs time for Haas as we enter the final 20 minutes of testing.

    A ticking off for Carlos Sainz as he uses an old part of the track at Turn 13. He’s currently seventh quickest with 1:18.214.

    “The wear balance feels better,” says Valtteri Bottas about his tyres.

    He did 15 laps on the softs before moving back onto hards.

  10. Not a lot in it

    The times are so close from fifth down to 16th – six tenths of a seconds – and that is someone going out in Q1 and someone qualifying in fifth position on the grid! It’s not a lot.

  11. Post update

  12. Post update

    Lewis Hamilton does a practice start at the pit lane exit as Valtteri Bottas continues to circulate on the softs. He’s 12 laps deep on them now.

  13. Positive times for Haas

    Haas say they are being helped by this not being a power-sensitive circuit but everything is dialled up nicely on the softs – they are fighting some understeer but there’s definite improvement there.

    Romain Grosjean is still not happy with those hard tyres – but everyone is struggling with those. But at the moment, a positive feeling for Romain Grosjean in the Haas – and we haven’t been able to say that for quite some time.

  14. Post update

    We’ve just passed the halfway point of the session with teams looking to see how far they can push the various tyre compounds in these conditions.

    Here’s the mid-session times.

  15. Post update

    Three is the magic number as that’s where Max Verstappen goes after a 1:17.704. Mercedes are way out in front, though – more than half a second quicker than anyone else.

  16. Three-sy does it

  17. Grosjean going well

    Grosjean is going well, cementing Haas’ good day of running so far. This is their qualifying simulation moment and Grosjean has gone ahead of both Racing Points and Carlos Sainz in the McLaren. Good effort and so far so good.

  18. Post update

  19. Post update

    The Mercedes trade places as Lewis Hamilton goes top with 1:16.883.

    Daniel Ricciardo leaps up into P3 with 1:17.868 while Romain Grosjean is going well – a 1:18.133 has him fourth quickest.

  20. Post update

    Speaking of softs, Valtteri Bottas is out on them now and swiftly goes P1 with a 1:17.170.
