Nine teams took part in the test with Manor Marussia opting out.

Max Verstappen for Toro Rosso and Romain Grosjean for Lotus were the only racing drivers to take part in the test with the other teams opting to use the test and reserve drivers.

For Mercedes, Pascal Wehrlein stepped into the car to complete 67 laps of the rain affected session. He set the fastest time of the day with a 1minute 11.005s lap.

Max Verstappen rounded off the top three with a time 0.323seconds off Wehrlein after 97 laps.
