Team-mate Charles Leclerc 0.011 seconds were missing.
"Today was a little bit better and a bit quieter. I felt very good," reported Vettel. "We have tried a couple of things. I don't necessarily believe that all have to work. Now we try to overnight the stuff to sort out, so we can get even better tomorrow and hopefully a peaceful and normal day."
In the morning session Vettel and Leclerc were on the Soft, practically on a par. Your times could improve in the afternoon. Also in the afternoon, Vettel was able to keep up in each of the sectors well - but never on the round as a whole: On the media, he lost the stall duel to 0,272, in the qualifying Runs will be on Soft to 0,257 seconds.
"It is in any case closely," says Vettel. "It is important, therefore, to pack everything in one round. We were not able to today. If we succeed, there should not be bad.

But so far that was positive." And: "Our race simulation in FT2 is gone for me pretty well. I'm happy with it."
"I'm pretty sure that we will succeed in qualifying, to get the Maximum out of the car. And if we get the Balance the way we imagine it, I can see a good result," says Leclerc - who suffers like many others, under the heat: "On the track it's not so bad. Since we can get fresh air.
