He eventually had to back out of the lap after running wide off the track limits.
Meanwhile, Hamilton set the pace and Bottas finished second, with Charles Leclerc finishing a surprise third in the session. Alpine continued their good form from Portugal and Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso finished fourth and fifth respectively and will hope to do on the main event day.
Pierre Gasly finished a fraction behind at sixth, while teammate Yuki Tsunoda made a sensational comeback to finish seventh. The Red Bulls driven by Sergio Perez and Verstappen closed out the top 10 after Carlos Sainz finished eighth with his Ferrari. Sebastian Vettel, who was given the upgrade Aton Martin teammate Lance Stroll received in Portugal, finished 11th, while Lando Norris, Antonio Giovinazzi, Lance Stroll and Daniel Ricciardo closed out the top 15.
