Arden Motorsport’s Eduardo Barrichello enjoyed his best session of the week and was second fastest, 0.087s ahead of Gabriele Minì (ART Grand Prix) who set his best time as the session was about to expire. Kas Haverkort (Van Amersfoort Racing) was fourth ahead of Gabriel Bortoleto (R-ace GP) who closed the top 5 six tenths off the overall fastest.
