Nico Rosberg finally took his turn at the top of the timesheets as Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton ended his session on foot after a hefty crash. Lewis lost the car into a high speed shunt, hitting the walls with enough force to send him to the medical centre, but he was unharmed. With Hamilton down in fifth, it was up to Ricciardo and Vettel to sit in second and third respectively.

Jolyon Palmer had yet more troubles, a fuel pressure problem keeping him in the garage and only able to complete 12 laps, bringing his total to 18 for the day. Fernando Alonso benefited from a power unit change, and finished up in the top ten, with teammate Jenson Button just behind him.
