After not much action on the track yesterday due to rain the track was dry for FP3. But still it looked very cloudy with 18°C.

Leclerc, Hartley and Sainz were the first out with the light going green.

After a limited track time on friday almost all drivers went out within the first 3 min with some of them practicing the start at the end of the pitlane.

The first timed laps are coming from the Ferrari's with Raikkonen setting a 1:35.514 with Vettel right behind him.

With 40 mins left the Ferrari's are still on top as they are out on Ultrasofts followed by Ocon on Softs.

McLaren also seems quiet good till now as both of them run in the top 10 with Vandoorne runs P4 on Supersofts and Alonso P9 on Softs.

As they went halfway through it wasn't much to see of both Mercedes'. But Bottas immediately improved himself to 3rd.

With nothing spectacular happening and still 18 mins to go Vettel setting a new fastest lap with a 1:33.797 followed by his teammate on 2nd and Bottas on 3rd.

As they were just 5 mins remaining most of the drivers are out on track and doing some more laps right before the qualifying later.

Just before the end of the session there were yellows on Sector 3 because Brendon Hartley spun right before the pitlane entry.

After that Hamilton improved hisself to 3rd with just 0.073 sec behind Vettel – who will serve a 3 place grid penalty.

The practice ends without any rain interruptions with Vettel as the fastest, Raikkonen on P2 and Hamilton on P3.
