After two days of McLaren dominaion in terms of quickest lap, Ferrari comes back on top of the standings with Charles Leclerc.

The young Monegasque scored a lap time of 1.16.231s with C5 compound this morning, covering 56 laps. With the 82 he added in the afternoon, Leclerc covered a total of 138 laps. His lap time is also 6 tenths quicker than Lewis Hamilton's 2018 pole position.

A good day then for Leclerc, who recovered from two bad days: he had to stop his run on Tuesday due to PU cooling issues, while yesterday he couldn't drive because of Sebastian Vettel's crash damages.

Most of the teams spent their afternoon with run simulations, but the second quickest time was signed by Alex Albon, just 6 tenths slower than Leclerc, followed by Lando Norris.

Fourth fastest time for Pierre Gasly, who, in the afternoon, has been the latest victim of the famigerated turn 3. After Valtteri Bottas and Sebastian Vettel, it was the Frenchman turn to crash his Red Bull in the same point as his collegues, damaging both the front and the rear wing of his RB15.

The day almost went as planned for everyone, except for Haas: the team had to deal with an exhaust issue.

William's George Russel, indeed, drove for 140 laps, with the hope to recover for all the time lost last week.
