Ferrari finally got the better of Mercedes in the last practice session before qualifying in Spain. Kimi Räikkönen was the fastest driver our on track, with Vettel behind him. Sebastian continued to experience mechanical gremlins in his car, though, stopping in the pit lane with 10 minutes to go. Valtteri Bottas was also struggling a little, he only completed seven laps as the team fiddled with the power unit in his Mercedes.

Red Bull were firmly in third, with Verstappen just ahead of Ricciardo on pace, and Nico Hülkenberg did another good job for Renault to finish inside the top seven.
