Ahead of qualifying in Austria later today (live on NBCSN from 8am ET), the F1 field will have its final chance to get to grips with the Red Bull Ring circuit in practice on Saturday morning.

Yesterday, it was business as usual for the Mercedes drivers, with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg each topping a session in their first F1 runs at the Red Bull Ring.

Both showed good one-lap pace, which will put them in good stead for qualifying, but this was underlined by an impressive long-run pace that should see the Silver Arrows return to the top step of the podium on Sunday.

Red Bull’s morale boost from Canada shows few signs of going much further this weekend after both Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel struggled throughout the sessions on Friday. At the team’s first ever home race, a podium finish will be the target, but both Ferrari and Williams are also in the mix to try and finish as the ‘best of the rest’ in Austria.

For most of the drivers, FP3 will be about finalizing their qualifying programme and making sure that all systems are working properly ahead of qualifying later today.
