It was another very close practice session, with Max Verstappen topping the timesheets at the end of the final hour of running. Lewis Hamilton was slow until an engine recalibration fixed the problem and he was back up to speed and finishing second. The top seven were split by just under a second, with the top thirteen under two seconds.

Brendon Hartley was just outside the top ten, in a good performance for the New Zealander, but his teammate Pierre Gasly had an engine issue that saw him stop out on track and the Toro Rosso crew rush to start repairs.
