CHINA GP – FINAL PRACTICE RESULTS

PRACTICE THREE

Report: A puzzling session for everyone including Scuderia Ferrari as the track was damp in this third practice session, while much more rain is expected for qualifying. Therefore most people did little more than an installation lap, as there was little to learn from using fuel and tyres to no avail. Fernando Alonso, like many of the field only did an installation lap, while Kimi Raikkonen also went out in the final minutes to learn more about the track in the wet and set the fifth fastest time on his only timed lap in 1.55.062. Alonso however stayed in the garage. Fastest, for what it’s worth, was Daniel Ricciardo, who did a 1.53.958 early in the session, when it was less wet in the Red Bull.
