The day had an unusual start with a red flag triggered by Red Bull‘s Sergio Perez running across a drain area, leading to track repairs. Once the session resumed without a lunch break, teams focused on completing their testing programs.

Despite dropping temperatures, Leclerc held onto the top spot, followed closely by George Russell of Mercedes and Sauber’s Zhou Guanyu. Max Verstappen, taking over from Perez in the Red Bull, secured the fourth position, completing 66 laps.
