Juncadella has spun off at the same place as Sutil, but he manages to get going again ahead head on his way.
Replays show Juncadella is rather lucky to avoid the wall there. He's absolutely shredded those tyres you hand back to Pirelli after half an hour, but that's valuable running lost for Perez and Force India.
Hamilton takes his place at the top of the timing screens, setting a 1:15.337.
Raikkonen has jumped ahead of Alonso into third, improving to a 1:15.570.
Rosberg goes purple in the first two sectors and jumps into P1 by three tenths.
Nasr and Maldonado have both had moments at Turn 4, as Grosjean becomes the third driver to run wide at the horse shoe.
Ricciardo puts his car third. Nasr, running for the final times in a Williams, has impressively gone fifth.
"Generally still too much understeer," reports Rosberg.
And as he does, Hamilton reclaims the top spot by nearly a second - a 1:14:172. So this new tarmac and the medium tyres getting faster and faster in the early stages.
Grosjean climbs to the dizzy heights of third as Rosberg reclaims top spot by a tenth. Early minutes here suggest there is very little to choose from between the title contenders.
Vettel has jumped above Ricciardo by three tenths, with Raikkonen improving on his own time to split the Red Bulls.
Still no sign of Button, Gutierrez or Magnussen.
The Mercedes drivers keep trading times as Hamilton lowers the benchmark down to 1:13.468. That's half a second quicker than Rosberg and a full second better than Kvyat in third. Ominous signs this morning for the chasing pack.
The cars return to the pits as they prepare to hand those tyres back to Pirelli.
@Vladi: He's clearly a very special talent, judging by the early stages of his career. Whether or not promoting him so early or not is a wise decision remains to be seen.
So the clock ticks into the final hour and that means those extra sets of medium tyres now get handed back to Pirelli.
A purple tinge to Vettel's helmet this weekend. Very curious to know what he will do with his lids when he's at Ferrari.
@RCC: It's currently being worked on in the garage.
@Vladi: It's a good point. But, the upside of it from a team perspective is, if you iron out all their issues early on, a teenage driver could still be a teenager when you unlock his true potential. risks are high though, I'll give you that.
@Matt: Worst-kept secret.
Magnussen is now out on track, which is empty other than the solitary McLaren.
Other than Magnussen, it's all pretty quiet out there. The aero sensors have now been taken off Magnussen's car and he begins a timed lap.
Love seeing the sparks flying off the bottom of the cars down towards Descida do Lago.
Magnussen is told by McLaren there is a clear track and he will attempt five laps.
