Half an hour into the session, a yellow flag was deployed at the last corner to retrieve some debris.

Meanwhile Jenson Button faced an engine issue. After staying in his car for ten minutes, Rosberg went out of his car again and was set not to go during the session.

Halfway through the session, Hamilton led from the two Red Bull of Ricciardo and Max Verstappen. As usual, the second half of the session was devoted to long runs while Rosberg’s car was being disassembled. Button suffered from engine problems on track but did not eventually pit.
