AUSTRIA GP – FINAL PRACTICE RESULTS

PRACTICE THREE

Report – The Scuderia Ferrari drivers ended the third free practice session for the Austrian Grand Prix in sixth and ninth places. Looking at the times, it seems qualifying positions will be decided by hundredths rather than tenths of a second. Twelve cars all lapped within a second this morning, while even more startling the top six are all within two tenths. Fernando Alonso did a 1.10.054 and Kimi Raikkonen lapped in 1.10.488. Quickest was Valtteri Bottas, who did a 1.09.848 in the Williams.

The two Ferrari men again did a lot of laps, bringing in more data which will be particularly useful for tomorrow’s race. Kimi did 22 laps and Fernando 17. The battle for pole gets underway at 14h00.
