The Red Bull junior Pierre Gasly recovered from a walkout in the afternoon session to post the third quickest time in the RB11, a day after making his F1 test debut for Toro Rosso.

McLaren’s Jenson Button set fourth fastest and the Brit racked up 100 laps in his Honda-powered MP4-30 on day spent assessing aerodynamic components.
