Rain ahead of the final practice session meant drivers were tentative making their first appearance of the day. Gradually a dry line started to appear and the teams sent their cars out for experimental laps. The hardest working driver was Esteban Gutiérrez who completed 15 laps, whilst a handful of drivers only did nine.

Valtteri Bottas finished top of the timesheets, with Nico Rosberg the best-placed Mercedes in third. Daniel Ricciardo in the Red Bull split the pair of them.
