In the end it was Valtteri Bottas who set the fastest time, closely followed by Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. However, Hamilton must already fear a possible reprimand or punishment by the stewards.

The seven-time world champion re-entered the track in a potentially unauthorized manner after going off the track in the first corner. Alfa Romeo driver Kimi Raikkonen will also be investigated by the stewards for a similar incident.
