@PavankumarKampalli: No, apologies if its misleading. It's generally accepted in the paddock Alonso has signed and the team is waiting on his team-mate, however.
@Vrij: It won't be until December 1 at the earliest now.
Grosjean languishing down in P17. He missed out this morning's session so Ocon could run in his car, and he's got a penalty hanging over his head for the race. At least that one doesn't carry over until 2015 otherwise he could be serving it for about six races....
@Mary-Lou: I don't think it has been, really. Kimi's not really been in a position to challenge Alonso much this year until the last few races.
@KelvinMartin: We won't really know until winter testing, to be perfectly honest. Different publications have reported they are on schedule, off schedule, etc, so it seems a lot of people are guessing.
By way of comparison, Hamilton's current time a 1:42.113.
Only Vergne and Gutierrez running soft tyres as everyone else continues on super soft long runs.
Kvyat, on the super soft, complaining about graining on his front right. Perhaps Toro Rosso is already placing one eye on its race strategy rather than qualifying.
@Mary-Lou: His struggles haven't been down to not receiving upgrades, the car just doesn't suit his driving style. Alonso hasn't been receiving preferential treatment because it doesn't benefit Ferrari to do that, especially in a year of such big changes AND after spending so much money to sign Raikkonen.
@LG: Let's not forget 2005, when they were title rivals. Great season and Raikkonen was unfortunate with retirements.
@MelhemSakr: Nope. The test was so Honda could record the first mileage on its new power unit. For obvious reasons, Honda wasn't singing about how the test session went.
Good save that from Vettel.
Hamilton and Alonso certainly seem to be a lot more adaptable to Raikkonen, judging by how he's been in 2009 and this season.
We're into the final 25 minutes of this session.
Massa and Perez now emerge on soft tyres for long runs on the prime tyres.
Maldonado has a moment and runs wide.
Kobayashi missed the apex at Turn 9. A few drivers starting to struggle on the super soft tyre.
@Marco: Button had an issue this morning and took about 25 minutes to emerge, so he's down on mileage compared to those around him.
The Mercedes drivers are currently lapping around nine tenths quicker than Bottas on their super soft long run.
