  4. Stop!

  5. Post update

    Valtteri Bottas goes 11th, faster than team-mate Lewis Hamilton and Nico Hulkenberg.

    There aren't going to be many times this season where the bottom two will be Hamilton and Hulkenberg. But that's what's happening today.

  6. Post update

    A late surge to keep us all on the edge of our seats. Daniel Ricciardo to squeeze in a couple of late ones.

    Stephen Knipe: Lando makes rookie mistake of trying to go fast in McLaren that wasn't designed for speed!

  9. Bottas is back

    With eight minutes to go, Valtteri Bottas, after an oil pressure problem that has ruined his day, is back out for a small amount of laps, heading out on the C2 (second hardest) tyres).

    Why is it always good news, bad news for McLaren?

    Bob McFeil: If Lando Norris sets another timed lap today, I’ll eat my sock.

    Socks. Chewy.

  15. Norris leads

    McLaren fans, you've waited a long time for good news, and Lando Norris is at the top of the times.

    Yes, yes, he's on the softest tyre possible, but he is there at the top thanks to a lap of 1:17.709.

    McLaren fans, sit down.

  17. Top-four movement

    The F1 timing screen appears to have had enough and given up for the day with the screen not updating for a while.

    In the meantime, Lance Stoll, on the C4 (second softest) tyres has moved second and Lando Norris on the softest C5 tyres has gone fourth.
