Nice paint job on the McLaren this weekend.
Magnussen heads out on track to join Verstappen out there, who has just started a flying lap.
@Matt1812014: I don't know about that - Hulkenberg is a class act and driver weight will be less of an issue for next season. I'd say keeping Hulkenberg would have been their number one priority - next year is his chance to break out of the midfield for good.
Verstappen can't improve on 12th, 2.637s down on thelead.
@Jason: Maybe he's going to be the Joker for Halloween. "Do I really look like a guy with a plan?"
Vettel is also out on track, as is Hulkenberg, the only man yet to complete a timed lap so far.
Ricciardo will miss the rest of this session with an ERS issue. So Red Bull in a bit of bother with both their cars this weekend.
That update from Benson proves that some of you here were correct in your guess Vettel would be getting at least some running in.
@phoenix: McLaren is starting a partnership with Honda next year. It makes sense for both to have a superstar on its books rather than two rookies who are harder to market. Red Bull made Vettel but it took time to do so - McLaren and Honda want immediate success.
Replays show Button having an almightly tobble through Turn 10 but he manages to save his McLaren. Verstappen also has a big moment on the approach to the same section.
@ZengőFényország: That one is ever so slightly tongue in cheek.
Rosberg and Hamilton are both out on track for another set of runs.
Rosberg jumps into sixth, despite running wide on the exit of Turn 20. He's 1.371s down on Button.
@MikeInDenmark: Montezemolo confirmed it, which is enough for me, even if he's not at Ferrari. Few things are known about 2015 but Alonso will not be at Maranello next season.
@Matt1812014: Indeed, a very good lap from the German.
Replay of Raikkonen locking up heavily behind another car coming into the final car. Looked very, very close to making contact there.
Maldonado and Grosjean sitting 17th and 18th at the moment, separated by six tenths - the Lotus drivers running different noses this morning of course.
Hamilton can't improve on eighth despite going fastest through the first sector on his most recent run.
Rosberg has lept up to P2, 0.356s off Button. Impressively, Red Bull-bound Kvyat is third, half a second off the lead.
Maldonado has gone off and continued at the uphill Turn 1.
Their fastest times: Kvyat 1:40.887, Verstappen 1:41.785.
Hamilton leaps into P1, two tenths faster than Button.
Hamilton's new benchmark is 1:40.106.
