    More drama to come this weekend? Join us for coverage of final practice from 14:30 BST tomorrow.

    More whinging about Lewis Hamilton by Sebastian Vettel. "Again he backs off," he sighs.

    It's been a friendly rivalry so far but is that starting to crack?

    Might as well stay out until the end," reports Sebastian Vettel. "I am stuck with Lewis Hamilton, who is doing mistakes and backs off. Need a better gap."

    Little dig.

    The marshals are on the scene to wheel Max Verstappen's Red Bull off the circuit... and then Jack Nicholls and John Watson nearly give me a heart attack on commentary as they frantically shout "he's down!". A marshal has taken a tumble.
