Pastor Maldonado's preparations for the Russian Grand Prix took another hit, as the Lotus driver could only manage to complete an installation lap in final practice. He didn't set a lap time, remaining in the garage due to a problem with the ERS on the car. Meanwhile, Kevin Magnussen brought out the red flags after stopping on track with some kind of suspension issue.

At the top, Valtteri Bottas picked up the pace, finishing within three tenths of a second of pacesetter Lewis Hamilton. Daniel Ricciardo improved for Red Bull finishing fourth, but Sebastian Vettel was still back in tenth.
