Hamilton set the pace as the final race weekend got underway in Abu Dhabi. It was the one anomaly of a session that takes place fully in daylight so isn’t of as much use as the others, but the track evolved quickly. Vettel ran the halo device on his Ferrari for 11 laps, and finished fifth overall. Red Bull had the edge on Ferrari, following the two Mercedes drivers in third and fourth.

Celis Jr was in the Force India for Friday morning, whilst Jordan King got another turn in the Manor car. A couple of drivers were struggling, with Romain Grosjean spinning and ending his session early, and Daniil Kvyat calling it quits when his Toro Rosso picked up a puncture.
