Obviously, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was third fastest – but a massive 0.763secs off the pace. Team-mate Charles Leclerc was 10th, struggling with car set-up.
And Vettel also had a near-miss at Turn One, when he locked a wheel on entry and just managed to get the car stopped before hitting the barriers.
Vettel said: “Tried a lot of things. They didn’t really work, so not that productive. Struggling a bit.
Lacking a bit of pace compared to Mercedes and struggling to get the tyres to really work, so a bit of work to do.”
Leclerc said he was struggling to get the tyres into the right operating-temperature, and had not had any clean laps.
Vettel is wearing a helmet paying tribute to the late Niki Lauda, who died on Monday.
It is one of a number of tributes being paid by teams and drivers up and down the grid.
Vettel added: “I would have preferred to do something a bit different here but with his passing it was a nice thing to do.
I think it looks quite cool. It is based on his last Ferrari design. Maybe it is nice to take him around for some final laps around Monaco.”
Hamilton, who was excused from his media duties on Wednesday following the death of Mercedes non-executive chairman Lauda, said:
“It’s the dream for every driver to come to Monaco and have a car that you can exploit and utilise your abilities with.
I’m really proud of the team and naturally our goal is to try to do something really positive this weekend.
“We’ve made some small tweaks over the two sessions and during the sessions as well, but I’ve been quite happy with the set-up.
“Every year we come back here, it gets faster and you really notice it when you’re going past the barriers.
However, Coming into Turn 12 (Tabac), you carry so much speed into that corner, and then there’s just the wall in front of you
going up the hill to Casino it’s the same thing. It’s incredibly intense out there and you have to be so focused.”
Verstappen had been within 0.1secs of the Mercedes in the first session, and split Hamilton and Bottas on the first runs in the afternoon.
But after Red Bull discovered the leak he then spent nearly an hour in the garage.
Actually, There was even worse news for Ferrari on the race-simulation runs later in the session, when Vettel was on average more than a second slower than the Mercedes.
