Charles Leclerc leads third practice

Sunny. Dry. Air +23С, track +29...33С

By Saturday, the trajectory in Zandvoort was covered with used rubber, but outside it the asphalt remained dirty - the wind brought sand, and after the support races there were many fragments of worn tires.

The teams continued the work started the day before with tires - Pirelli brought to the stage more rigid compositions than at the previous four Grand Prix, and on Friday, not everyone was able to bring the tires to the optimal mode.

The session went smoothly. Ricciardo hit the gravel at turn 12 with no consequences for the car. Leclerc damaged the bottom on the curb - everything was checked in the pits and he left again. On the machines of Norris and Ricciardo, during the session, the mechanics changed the suspension settings.

At the end of the session, Gasly took off in the ninth turn, knocking down a foam block with the distance to the turn - and returned to the pits.

Charles Leclerc took the lead with a lap time of 1:11.632. The results were solid, the fight in qualifying will be interesting.
