Two-time defending champion Sebastian Vettel, who has yet to win a home race, was third in the afternoon in the second Red Bull, after finishing 12th in the morning.

“We couldn’t learn too much today, so we just got used to the conditions, as there may be rain tomorrow and also on Sunday. The forecast isn’t looking great,” Vettel said. “It would have been good to have got some dry running in, especially this afternoon to test a couple of things and see how the car feels.”
