16:50
Sainz Jr. is back out after his recent stoppage

16:42
Hamilton has nine laps remaining on his Soft-tyre stint, according to the Mercedes pit board

16:38
Hamilton has finally found a way past Verstappen, whether in the form of an overtake, or being let through

Unless he's keen to look at how the Red Bull handles...
16:34
Hamilton getting closer to Verstappen, but unable to pass

15:43
"John, ‪83, was admitted to St Georges Hospital, London in February with an existing respiratory condition and after a short period in intensive care he passed away peacefully this afternoon," read a statement from the Surtees family
15:43

Green flag!
15:27
Ferrari mechanics are on scene, eager to cover the underneath of the SF70H
15:25
The recovery truck is now on scene to deal with Raikkonen's stranded car
15:24
The CCTV camera has zoomed in too much, but it would appear as if Raikkonen has come to a halt facing backwards on the pre-2007 layout of the circuit
15:23
That's the second time we've seen Raikkonen cause a red flag in as many days in the car this week
15:22
The Finn climbs from his car as marshals wander over to the scene
15:22
Red flag. Raikkonen is facing the wrong way at the chicane
15:21
Stroll has come back out for Williams - and he passes the 100 lap mark
15:20
Raikkonen is in the 1:23.9s on this stint - encouraging performance, to go with Vettel's eye-catching times yesterday
15:18

15:03

Though the elder Spaniard returns to the pits after that brief stint
15:01
Raikkonen, Sainz and Alonso are the only drivers lapping

14:58
Raikkonen is now on the Soft tyre as he continues to rack up mileage for Ferrari
14:57
Grosjean posts a 1:21.389 on the Ultra Soft tyres
14:56
The paddocks in flyaway events all have permanent structures for the teams to use for hospitality purposes
14:55
The motorhomes will be put away until F1 returns to Spain in May for the start of the European season
14:54
With two hours remaining, the usual pack up is underway
14:52
Speaking of junior formula, there was news last night that GP2 is no more, instead replace by F2: http://www.gpupdate.net/en/gp2-news/350393/gp2-series-rebranded-as-fia-formula-2/
14:51

14:42
He follows that up with a personal best middle sector time
14:42
We have a green first sector from Alonso
14:41
At the bottom end of the team mileage charts is McLaren on 22, though Alonso is now out on track
14:41
Stroll leads the way on 92 laps, with Perez on 88, Sauber (combined) on 79
14:40
Raikkonen surpasses a race distance with that previous lap - 67 in total for the day
14:39
14:35
He's back out on the Ultra Soft tyres - and completes a competitive lap
14:33
Alonso is out on track - good news for McLaren
14:32
14:28
90 minutes into the session and we're still awaiting our first appearance of the Red Bull and McLaren
14:26
Hamilton has come back out on a set of Ultra Softs, and he goes seventh, ahead of Stroll
14:23
Drivers are getting into the groove of a race simulation - we're not seeing any headline-grabbing times
14:19
The Frenchman has admitted that the brakes remain a key issue for him ahead of the 2017 campaign: http://www.gpupdate.net/en/f1-news/350437/grosjean-haas-still-struggling-with-brakes/
14:19
We've been hearing from Grosjean over the lunch break...
14:14
Palmer moves into the 1:23s, still on Mediums, but that keeps him down in 12th
14:14
Pacesetter Raikkonen is back out for Ferrari, as is Grosjean, after his second stoppage

14:07
Palmer joins the circuit for his first laps in the Renault today
14:04
Hamilton, still out on Super Softs, finds further time, lifting him to a 1:20.705, albeit still eighth
14:01
As we said - not too far off Spanish GP conditions
13:59
Hamilton comes back out for Mercedes
13:56
Only Sainz Jr. and Stroll are circulating as we approach the end of the first hour
13:54
13:52
The Briton returns to the pits after that spell on the Ultra Softs
13:51
Hamilton logs a slight improvement - a 1:21.020, but remains in eighth position
13:49
Wehrlein, still on Softs, posts a 1:24.940
13:47
Hamilton, on Ultra Softs, clocks a 1:21.319 - that puts him P8
13:44
Wehrlein's first flying lap, a 1:25.143 on Softs, puts him into 11th position
13:42
Hamilton hits the track for the first time this afternoon - the post-lunch lull firmly at an end
13:40
Wehrlein enters the arena, having taken over from Ericsson for the afternoon session
13:40
Stroll has now joined Perez out on track
13:38
He's lapping on the Super Soft tyres
13:37
It's still just Perez racking up the milage for Force India
13:31
Perez once more is the driver to break the silence
13:26
Still no track action...
13:20
Perez has returned to the pit lane for good this time, meaning there's no activity on track
13:19
There is a certain cruelness in giving drivers, who need to eat healthily and train rigorously, a huge chocolate cake, but it's the gesture that counts
13:18
13:16
Perez is completing slow laps for Force India, coming through the pit lane in the process
13:12
Our first activity of the afternoon session as Perez joins the fray
13:08
Back in F1, we've had clarification of the problems facing McLaren, after another miserable morning: http://www.gpupdate.net/en/f1-news/350433/mclaren-honda-hit-by-further-electrical-issues/
13:06
Elsewhere in the world, we also have MotoGP testing, with the final three days of pre-season action getting underway over in Qatar
13:06
We have the sound of wheel guns being fired, but no cars on track
13:04
The answer to that, at the moment, is no, with the usual post-lunch lull in full swing
13:01
And with it being 2pm - the same time as qualifying takes place in May - does anyone fancy a quick lap?
13:01
It's so warm today that conditions aren't too far off what we'd enjoy at the Spanish Grand Prix...
13:01
Green flag - we're back underway for the final afternoon
12:55
Hello and welcome back to the final day of pre-season testing at an unseasonably warm Barcelona
12:04
We'll be back for the afternoon session shortly before 14:00 local time!

12:01

12:01
Quite a morning, which Raikkonen and Ferrari on top with a 1:18.634, set with the Super Soft tyre
12:00
It's time for the lunch break...
12:00
Chequered flag
11:58
Raikkonen heads out on the Ultra Soft compound tyre but does not improve - his lap comes in at 1:18.911
11:58
"Fernando has stopped out on track with the same issue that Stoffel encountered yesterday - intermittent electrical shutdown. Various electrical components in the PU and chassis were changed overnight, and the team are making further changes to eliminate variables and identify the source of the problem."
11:56
Word from McLaren-Honda about today's troubles...
11:55
Plenty of drivers are quick to head back out
11:54
Green flag!
11:52
Another lap record reminder from the circuit:

11:44

That's the fastest time of pre-season testing so far
11:25

11:23
Perez has just improved to a 1:20.270 on Super Softs
11:22
He now picks up his camera and heads back up the circuit access road
11:22
CCTV cameras zoom in on a cameraman who appears to have strayed into a restricted zone at the first corner...
11:20
A few of the Mercedes-powered cars have done that this week...
11:20
Another strange noise from the Williams as he backs off after the line
11:19
Stroll gets close to improving on Ultra Softs, but falls just short
11:16

11:13

A shortcut between the circuit walls and Alonso's car is back in the pits
11:01
As per the original McLaren-Honda press schedule, Alonso will not be speaking to the media after today's running
11:01
A penny for Alonso's thoughts right now...
10:59
No sign of Alonso, who quickly fled the scene of the stoppage
10:58
Alonso's car is now loaded onto the recovery truck again
10:56
So that's two stoppages yesterday, two today, for the Honda-powered McLaren...
10:54
10:53
He jumps out of the MCL32 and immediately walks away...
10:52
Red flag. Alonso has stopped out on track again...
10:50

10:31

10:20
While McLaren-Honda struggles...
10:19
A suitable time to link back to our feature on Alonso losing his patience with the troubles at McLaren-Honda: http://www.gpupdate.net/en/f1-news/350347/insight-alonso-loses-patience-with-honda/
10:18

10:17
10:15
The MCL32 has come to a halt in the second sector
10:15
Red flag. Alonso has stopped...
10:11
Bottas said yesterday that Mercedes needs to fully understand recent upgrades: "We're still finding out which of these parts are the best suited to our car and how exactly we can draw 100 per cent out of the package. Every day is still a massive learning curve for us and we've still got a lot of work to do to get it right."
10:10
Bottas continues in the 1m23s on this Soft-tyre run - a couple of laps left, according to his pit board
10:06
10:06
...but the remainder of his lap is slower
10:06
Stroll, on Softs, goes purple through the first sector...
10:04
Matej: Mercedes initially ran its W08 at Silverstone without a shark fin or T-wing, before trialling a T-wing in the afternoon. During the pre-season tests in Barcelona, it has tried a combination of the shark fin, T-wing and double T-wing. Let's see what it brings to Australia!
10:00

Grosjean has made a small improvement, but stays eighth
09:11
Vettel was in a positive mood during his midday press session, albeit keen to play down expectations: http://www.gpupdate.net/en/f1-news/350377/vettel-plays-down-ferrari-testing-speed/
09:10
Aside from that, it's all been rather encouraging for Ferrari, particularly yesterday, as it showed rapid short-run pace and proved very consistent on race stints
09:09
Raikkonen will be hoping to avoid a repeat of this incident on Wednesday...
09:08
Raikkonen and Grosjean are keeping the track active right now
09:05
Raikkonen, also on Mediums, improves to 1:22.261

Stroll's lap ends with a 1:22.598 - that's four-tenths slower than his personal best
08:50
Stroll backs off on his next lap. He spoke yesterday of wanting to carry out qualifying simulations - could this be Williams' current plan? He goes green in sector one...
08:49
08:48
Stroll also leads the mileage charts this morning, having completed 18 laps
08:45
Stroll, on Softs, moves to the front on 1:22.123
08:45
Alonso, after a cool-down lap, improves to 1:22.731
08:42
