It is advantage Max Verstappen heading into Monaco Grand Prix Qualifying as he set the pace in the third and final Formula 1 practice session.
A 1:12.776 was good enough for the World Champion to cement top spot heading into Saturday afternoon's session, as he led a Red Bull one-two.
Sergio Perez was just 0.073s behind with Lance Stroll an encouraging third for Aston Martin as Fernando Alonso could not get a clean lap owing to traffic and a late VSC for the stopped Kevin Magnussen.
The session was red-flagged in the closing minutes after Lewis Hamilton crashed at Portier, and although the front-left of the Mercedes needs to be replaced, he escaped further damage.
