Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo also did well in his own McLaren, coming fifth after a disappointing season so far.
World champion Max Verstappen was fourth fastest in the second session, with Alpine’s Fernando Alonso sixth. Another veteran, Sebastian Vettel followed up his announcement that this would be his last F1 season with a seventh fastest showing.
In the other Red Bull, Sergio Perez was ninth and Valtteri Bottas scored 10th for Alfa Romeo.
It was a disappointing showing for Mercedes after their two podium spots last weekend in France, as George Russell took eighth and Lewis Hamilton 11th.
In hot conditions - 35 degrees centigrade - both Mercedes drivers complained about the car with Hamilton labelling it "unstable" and Russell complaining: "What the hell is going on in Turn One? I can't get around without locking."
Saturday will give the teams one more practice session before qualifying.
