Mark Webber performed the 5th fastest lap (1:36.092) while Sebastian Vettel (1:36.791) performed the 10th.
Mark Webber: “It was good today and we achieved a lot of mileage. There are obviously some pretty quick cars out there – we saw that in Malaysia before it rained in qualifying. We're getting a lot of information, but we’re still in this early phase of learning about the tyres.
Sebastian Vettel: “Today was a tricky day for us. I struggled a bit this afternoon and the gap to the guys at the top is a little bit bigger than I'd like. There are two or three things that we need to work on and then we should be in a better shape for tomorrow.
I think we know what we need to do. It looks like the soft tyre is the one for qualifying, but it seems that we won’t see that many stints on the soft tyre during the race.”
