The final race weekend in Malaysia for the forseeable future, and it started with a delay to the first practice session due to a downpour. Things got going after thirty minutes, and naturally there was plenty of spinning and struggling for grip, until the track started to dry out. Pierre Gasly made his debut for the Toro Rosso team, whilst there were a handful of Friday drivers also in action.

Red Bull showed their pace, with Max Verstappen posting the fastest time of the session, with Fernando Alonso making it into the top three!
