Daniel Ricciardo went fifth for Red Bull, ahead of McLaren driver Jenson Button.

Ferrari pair Kimi Räikkönen and Fernando Alonso placed seventh and eighth for the team, while Kevin Magnussen and Daniil Kvyat completed the top 10.

Outgoing world champion Sebastian Vettel could manage only 11th for Red Bull, ahead of Lotus pilot Pastor Maldonado.

Adrian Sutil was 13th for Sauber, ahead of French duo Romain Grosjean and Jean-Eroc Vergne.

Esteban Gutierrez and Force India racers Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez rounded out the 18-car field.
