Lewis Hamilton leaves the Mercedes garage in Spain (2019)

Event: Spanish Grand Prix
Track: Catalunya Circuit

Weather: 21.0-19.8°C cloudy & dry
Tarmac: 29.0-26.1°C dry
Humidity: 65.1%
Wind: 1.0 m//s
Pressure: 1024.9 bar

Because the weather in the final and 3rd practice session is mostly cloudy, the catalunya track surface was 13°C colder than during yesterdays FP2  for the 2019 Spanish F1 GP.

Sebastian Vettel was the first driver of the top team drivers to set a lap time. His first time was 1:18.925.

After 20 minutes we saw a rare error made by Valtteri Bottas. On his first out lap on cold tyres, he spun the Mercedes W10 in turn 5 and caused a red flag which stopped the session to get it out of the gravel trap.

With 16 minutes to go Bottas returned to the track on new soft tyres to drive a few qualifying laps. His team mate Hamilton and rival Vettel also did the same.

With 5 minutes to go FP3 was ended when Williams driver George Russel lost control of his car in turn 4 and ended up backwards into the barrier.

Last years quickest lap time was a 1:17.281 also driven by Hamilton.

One F1 fan comment on “Lap times 3rd free practice 2019 Spanish F1 GP

  1. Roger Carroll

    Great performance by Haas and I have difficulty believing the difference between Verstappen and Albon is a real reflexion of of the cars and the drivers so what is happening?. Great to see Raikkonen beavering away so hard as usual. Very interesting to see some stuck with medium tyres to the end of the session; are the teams concerned hedging their bets? Renault out of the top 10 is disappointing , heads about to roll I should think likely.
