Those three cars were a class apart with Charles Leclerc in the Ferrari almost half a second behind Alonso, and just ahead of Nico Hulkenberg’s Haas. Lance Stroll was sixth, but radio-ed in an issue with his wrist

Pierre Gasly was next in the Alpine, with Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes only managing eighth. His teammate George Russell was 13th fastest.
