It was Mercedes on top again as Nico Rosberg was the fastest driver of the morning session. All eyes were on McLaren, however, as the team struggled with several reliability problems. Jenson Button spent most of the session in the garage, whilst Kevin Magnussen had a loss of power similar to that he experienced yesterday.

Pastor Maldonado finally managed to get some running in, completing 20 laps and the Lotus pair finished 15th and 16th. It's team by team towards the rear of the grid, with teammates together - Marussia ahead of Caterham, in turn ahead of McLaren.
