Susie Wolff made history by becoming the first woman to participate an official Formule 1 session since Giovanna Amati in 1992. Unfortunately, due to an oil pressure problem on her Williams, she only covered four laps.

Regarding the reserve drivers, Daniel Juncadella was aboard the Sahara Force India. Giedo Van der Garde drove the Sauber and Robin Frijns was in action with Caterham.

Felipe Massa had a big crash, causing an interruption of 17 minutes to clear his Williams.

Despite his best lap time, Lewis Hamilton was visibly disappointed in the afternoon, unable to properly prepare the race with only 14 laps.

Just like in the morning, Daniel Ricciardo is fourth with Red Bull, ahead of his teammate Sebastian Vettel, and Kimi Raikkonen with the second Ferrari.
