Verstappen leaves the pits, conducting a practice start at the end of the pit lane before joining the track. Both Toro Rosso rookies have been doing that a lot this week.
@Divijarsenal: I don't think it's a decision made easily. Either there are financial factors at play or its seen something in the Cologne wind tunnel it's not happy with. Either way, it's not a good sign for F1 to have another team staring into the abyss.
Sauber's latest soft run puts him above Hamilton, as he jumps into P2 with a 1:22.019.
Kvyat posts a personal best, a 1:23.975, but remains seventh.
Verstappen has slowed and crawled back into the pit lane. Could be an issue for the wonder boy.
@Allons-y: The official lap record is the one set by Frentzen in 1997.... a 1:23.135.
@Samy: Around there, yes. Massa said yesterday that Williams was running with its engine turned down too.
Red flag for an object on the track. Looks like a brake marker board... or a cardboard box.
@SyahirAlias: Because they are not focused solely on pace at this test. Lots of other things they can be doing. Williams, for example, is doing purely aero work. It doesn't look spectacular on a timing screen but they'll be gaining valuable data about their car without putting too much stress on the engine.
Looks like the red flag was a polystyrene block of some sort. Marshals remove it speedily and we're back to a green track with ten minutes of the session remaining.
Looks like Ericsson has stopped out there on track.
Ericsson has come to a halt just after Turn 9, exactly where Kvyat stopped this morning.
@nolrameyapam: The test is for everything on their car, but they're not just out there blasting round at 100% at this stage. You can still test engine mileage and not be pumping out hugely quick times.
This red flag might well end the session as there's less than five minutes until the chequered flag.
Hamilton had got to the bottom of the pit lane before that red flag occured. He's now being wheeled back to the Mercedes garage.
Sauber has confirmed Ericsson ran out of fuel as they completed a fuel system check.
And indeed that is all we have time for from this final test.
Once again, it's Ferrari at the top. Please be sure to check back on ESPNF1 for all the reaction to this test and the build-up to the start of the new one in Barcelona on February 19.
Thanks as ever for joining Laurence and myself and hope to see you again soon.
Kvyat and Hamilton head out for a last minute final lap.
The chequered flag comes out now so the test is over.
To repeat my statements of a few moments ago, thanks for joining us and we hope to see you here again in two weeks time.
