The session started in damp conditions, with Verstappen setting the early pace on intermediates at 1m37.518s. Hamilton beat that as the track continued to dry with 1m37.134s.

Just after drivers switched to slicks, Red Bull’s Sergio Perez spun off at Copse, causing a red flag with 7m30s to go.

The session restarted with everyone on slicks, but with heavy rain in the vicinity. Verstappen went off at Copse but managed to run through the gravel rather than spinning as his team-mate had, but he did sustain damage to his floor.
