@ZAC: It's more for fun. Detailed photos can be manipulated in Photoshop to get a good idea of the curves and shapes on the car.
Button clocks a 1:26.832 in the McLaren to drop Maldonado to the bottom of the timesheets.
Ricciardo has also been back out since the lunch break, so hopefully that means the ERS issue is fixed.
Ricciardo pops up to fourth on the soft tyres with a 1:25.103. I wonder if GP2 drive Gasly can manage that in the simulator?
Red flag! The Toro Rosso is off the track.
Looks like Verstappen is off around Turn 12
@ChrisR: A nice way to make a point. He's quite a character and should be a good boss at Ferrari.
@speedy31: They have been focusing on different aero solutions so not necessarily going for quick laps. However, since Maldonado put the car in the barriers about 30 minutes ago, the team is assessing whether it can fix it and get it back on track.
@NorbertHaug: Verstappen's car was loaded onto a flat bed truck and delivered back to the pits.
Vettel, Nasr, Ricciardo, Perez, Rosberg and Button on track now.
@ChristopherKeith: He is on the hard compound and just did a 1:33.195, which looks like the start of a race sim to me
Nasr completes 100 laps in the Sauber, the first driver to hit triple figures today
