Just before halfway through the session, she saw Esteban Ocon crash like the rest of the spectators. The Frenchman was able to get out of his Alpine F1 car without injury, but he did cause a red flag.

However, in the closing minutes of the session, both Red Bulls went even faster. First it was Sergio Perez who set the fastest time, after which Max Verstappen went just 0.005 seconds faster.
