Max Verstappen has completed his third free practice for with an impressive time GP Bahrain, as he overtook the current world champion by a time of 1: 30,577 by 739 thousandths Lewis Hamilton. At first glance, it may seem like it British he may have made a mistake in his fast lap, but that was not the case.

Right now Red Bull it really seems a world unto itself, a qualifications are the ones who will determine tomorrow's order and in which the hiding places will finally come to an end, but it is true that experts also admit that Red Bullu over the winter best done homework. Jenson Button told Sky the following: "Regardless of the not-so-ideal high-wind conditions, every Max circle seems to be very controlled in all sectors."

It was partly competitive in this regard as well Sergio Perez, who drove the fifth time, and took care of the surprise of the day Pierre Gasly v Alpha Tauri, who left behind both "other drivers" of Mercedes and Red Bulla. Less successful this time was the otherwise fast-paced little Japanese Yuki tsunoda, which this time reached only the 13th time.

We saw at Ferrari yesterday that it will Carlos Sainz serious threat to the unofficial Leclerc status number one and even today the Spaniard with sixth place made it clear to Monaco that he will not let go just like that. Leclerc he otherwise complained of insufficient grip and in bend no. 2 also spun.

Even his former teammate Sebastian Vettel after the end of training he was not exactly satisfied, as he did not drive, but he finished with the 14th time, after dropped part of the front wing and hit him in the helmet, but fortunately the German did not suffer any serious consequences.

Let’s mention the even worse results of both McLarnov compared to Friday. Yesterday second place in the second free practice, Lando Norris, reached only the 16th time today, Fernando Alonso is again well behind Esteban Ocon, Mick Schumacher however, it was again faster than Nikita Mazepina. The red lantern goes this time Nicholas Latifi in Williams.
