Red Bull continued their strong early season form on Sunday as Max Verstappen topped the timing sheet with a 1:28.960 on the C4 compound tyres.

The Dutchman finished less than a tenth ahead of AlphaTauri's Yuki Tsunoda, who was on the C5, as Honda showed their pace via both cars, a welcome sight for the Japanese engine provider.

There was a bit of a surprise in third spot as Carlos Sainz battled through hydraulic issues in the afternoon to finish with a 1:29.611 on the C4 tyres. Lewis Hamilton switched to the C5 tyres near the end of the session in a bid to improve his lap time, however he finished the day with the fifth fastest time behind Kimi Raikkonen.
