FP1:

      Antonio Giovinazzi drove Magnussenís car, and Alfonso Celis drove Oconís.

      Giovinazzi stuffed his Magnussenís Haas into the wall around turn 11 and effectively destroyed both left suspension/wheel assemblies and had the red flags out while they carried it away.

      At the very end Palmer ran wide at turn 4 and destroyed his front wing over the kerb.There was debris all over the place so they red flagged the session with 5 seconds to go!

      All the proper times set on the supersoft tyre.

FP2:

      As the session started mechanics were still working on Magnussenís and Palmersí cars.

      Wehrlein lost it and parked severely against the tyre barrier on the outside of turn 11. He was OK but his car wasnít and red flags came out while the removed it. Session restarted with 30 minutes to go and then driversí long runs in race setup were interrupted again with red flags when Palmer hit a wall again. This time in the final turn with 18 minutes to go. There were 12 mins left when the green light came on, so not much could be achieved so FP3 will be busy.Hamilton, for example got no serious running on the supersoft tyres. Experience has shown that when he is on the back foot tike this he qualifies well and often wins the race!!

FP3:

      No red flags this session!!Mind you, that didnít mean there wasnít an incident. Ricciardo stopped on track a little after half way through the session when he suffered a total electrics failure.

      Off track, Massa, who had been unwell last night packed it in after only 12 laps or so, not 100% better. The mechanics set about changing stuff on the car as it seems he will not use it a gain this weekend.Paul Di Resta is the Williams reserve drive and is feet taller that Massa so there will be some work to do to get the car ready for him in time for qualifying.

      Vettelís stormer of a lap is the fastest any F1 car has ever been around this circuit – probably the fastest any car has done it. Raikkonen was only a tenth or so behind him, which rather stamps the Ferrariís authority on this session at least.Red Bull were being conservative with engine use (the teams are only allowed four units without penalty this year) so didnít do too many laps anyway. It was difficult to tell whether the Mercedes drivers were struggling with balance or not. They had the occasional wide run, but then so did most others. And they ran on the soft tyres for longer than anyone else, and thatís not because they had any more – check the allocation above.

      McLaren did well.The car seemed well set up and the drivers are beginning to stretch the engines now, although this is not a power-dependent circuit. Vandoorne set his time right at the end.Good to see the Renault guys up there as well, with their cars new parts, mainly a new floor design, working well. Qualifying could be interesting.

RACE:

      Magnussen penalised 5 seconds for driving Hulkenberg off the road.

      Hulkenberg retired when he sustained gearbox damage when Magnussen drove him off the road.

      Grosjeanís wheel nut was put on cross-threaded at his pitstop.

      Ricciardo was hit by Verstappen on the opening lap and sustained enough damage to cause him to retire. (I would have loved to have been a fly-on-the-wall at the team debrief!!
