He led out his former Formula 2 rivals with George Russell and Alexander Albon the next out on track.

Despite only putting in a single lap on Wednesday following Sebastian Vettel’s crash, Charles Leclerc was the last driver to leave the pits on Thursday morning.

The Monagasque driver was seen for the first half an hour before heading out for a single installation lap.

30 minutes later he posted his first lap time of the day, a 1:19.191.

Lewis Hamilton posted the first lap time of the morning but it was a rather stead.m 01.389.

Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen were quick to slash that to a more competitive 1:20.

Red Bull gave Pierre Gasly some rather impressive wings!

Meanwhile, if you were wondering who is winning the aero rake grand prix, it’s definitely @redbullracing
