FP1:

Very much a test session for some teams as running this session at this time of day is not representative of track conditions for qualifying and the race, which will be run later in the day when it wil be cooler.

FP3:

A slow start to this session as once again the time of day is significant and the drivers were waiting for the sun to go down a bit and the track to cool off so the running was more in line with conditions for qualifying later today.
