FP3: Leclerc and Ferrari extend Baku advantage

Baku, April 27, AZERTAC

After 60 minutes of final practice in Azerbaijan this afternoon the scarlet cars of Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel led the third-placed Red Bull of Max Verstappen by over a second, with Mercedes forced to settle for fourth and fifth.

After Friday’s dramas, it was a remarkably incident-free session, with Leclerc enjoying a two-tenths’ advantage over his more experienced team mate. Behind them – by quite some margin – came Verstappen, Valtteri Bottas and Hamilton.

Hot on the heels of the silver cars came a very close midfield pack, headed by Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat and rookie team mate Alex Albon, split by the Haas of Kevin Magnussen.

Baku specialist Sergio Perez gave Racing Point a top-ten placing in ninth, while Kimi Raikkonen completed the top ten for Alfa Romeo.
