Session underway and the cars stream out of the pits. It is usually a busier session than usual as the teams have put more emphasis on Qualifying in the previous practice sessions.
Teams will finalise their race set-up. It is expected all drivers to be on a single stop strategy. That is mainly due to the near impossibility of overtaking. Session starting in 2 minutes
Session starting at 9:30 AM local time. It is partly cloudy with a temperature of 19 degrees.
