The forecast promised a high probability of precipitation throughout the day on Saturday, but the morning training was held on a dry track after a night rain. Racers drove only on slicks.

For the second day in a row, Daniel Kvyat’s car broke down. In the 22nd minute, he stopped after leaving the pit lane due to loss of power of the power plant. VSC mode was announced for several minutes to evacuate it.

Yesterday, Daniel drove only five laps in the first training session, today – only four in the third. The car was returned to the pits, Kvyat no longer drove out – the motorists decided for the second time in the weekend to replace the power plant, it would be difficult to catch the start of the qualification.

Sergio Perez lost most of the session due to problems with the car.

In the last minutes, Verstappen made a mistake in the second corner, the car hit the bottom hard on the curb, jumping into the air. After that, Max turned around in the 13th turn, he turned into the pits and the mechanics took up the machine.

Like on Friday, the riders of the three strongest teams fought for leadership. Losing at one point to Leclair 1.1 seconds, Lewis Hamilton told the engineer: “I have no idea how we will play them,” but then he was able to reduce the backlog.

The protocol was headed by Charles Lecler, having passed the circle in 1: 32.733 and ahead of the nearest opponent by three tenths.
