23:00 And that’s it then! FP3 ends with Vettel leading the way!

22:53 Just under 10 minutes left, Alonso has been giving it full beans…

22:48 Local hero Stroll is having a go on the ultrasofts and manages a 1.14.7, which puts him P16, a tenth off teammate Massa. Meanwhile, Bottas has locked up at the hairpin.

22:45 Hamilton has managed a 1.12.9 on his ultrasoft run so far, 0.354 seconds off Vettel and 0.062 seconds off Raikkonen. Bottas has nearly hit the wall and is a further three tenths back.

22:40 Vettel has kept on keeping on, bringing the time down to a 1.12.5. Here come the Mercedes pair on ultrasofts! Let’s see.

22:35 Kimi Raikkonen goes P2, just 0.002 off teammate Vettel, but as I say that the German lowers his benchmark to a 1.12.7, before Raikkonen follows him on a 1.12.8. The Mercedes pair are still touring the circuit on supersofts, so we’ll see what they have to offer a little later on.

22:30 We’re just about halfway in, the two Toro Rosso youngsters are doing their bit this morning so far!

22:25 A certain red fellow currently rules the roost, but the Silver Arrows haven’t strapped on the purple boots yet…

22:20 Vettel still on top, but in the mean time he’s managed a 1.13.0, and Hamilton is up to P2.

22:15 Vettel tops the table on a 1.13.7, as Sergio Perez is informed by Force India that the tyres are proving difficult to warm up.

22:09 Good crowd in already today, and it looks set to be a fascinating weekend!

22:05 Daniel Ricciardo has gone out on a set of ultrasofts and getting right to it. The Australian is surely trying to make up time after having his running cut short yesterday.

22:00 And let’s get to it! The two Ferrari’s hit the track, with Raikkonen leading out Vettel. Both on soft tyres.

21:55 Some weather news for you: it wasn’t the warmest of days yesterday, and today doesn’t seem much warmer. Track temperature of 29 degrees, air temperature of 20 degrees.

21:58 Some weather news for you: it wasn’t the warmest of days yesterday, but today seems pleasant. Track temperature of 29 degrees, air temperature of 19 degrees.

21:50 The 2017 cars certainly seem to be doing the business so far this weekend. There’s far more to come today, so expect that 2016 time to be beaten by a fair margin…

21:45 Red Bull will also be looking to put a complicated Friday behind them. The Austrian outfit were showing decent pace, until reliability brought their program to a premature end.

21:40 One driver who will really be craving a trouble-free session is Fernando Alonso. The two-time champion came back from an impressive appearance in the Indy500 full of smiles, but after a hydraulics issue on his McLaren yesterday, you have to wonder how long it will be before the clouds gather around his face again.

21:35 It was an up and down day yesterday for the field, with lots of spins and the odd reliability hiccup. Here’s a reminder of how matters stood at the end of FP2…
