Red Bull fighting hard
The top three ended up less than a tenth apart as Lewis Hamilton put his Mercedes P3 only 0.096 behind Verstappen.
Midfield ever so close to the front
Alex Albon put a good performance putting his car P4 despite still being 0.390 seconds off of his teammate.
The midfield being ever tighter as in this session all the way down to P12 was where the one-second gap to Verstappen ended.
Ferrari problems worsen
Charles Leclerc came home in P15, a position that would be slowest in Q2 come qualifying. As hard as it is to believe, that is good news for Ferrari.
Sebastian Vettel finished behind the Williams of George Russell which left Russell in P16 and Vettel in P17. The only cars to finish behind Vettel were Russell's teammate Nicholas Latifi and the two Haas cars which both had no running in FP1 due to an engine change for both cars.
This weekend and Monza next week are going to be very trying times for the Scuderia.
