Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen and Racing Point’s Sergio Perez crashed in the wet conditions early on, before the drivers switched to dry-weather slicks late on.
Leclerc, fresh from his maiden victory in Belgium, was 0.306 seconds quicker than the McLaren’s Carlos Sainz.
Vettel ended the session eighth fastest, 2.602secs slower than Leclerc.
By the end of the session, there had been an impressive performance from Red Bull new boy Alexander Albon, who ended up fifth fastest in his first wet session for his new team.
