WATCH LIVE: FP3 for the Italian Grand Prix

0 Comments

After dominating both sessions on Friday at Monza, Mercedes will be looking to continue its clean sweep in final practice for the Italian Grand Prix on Saturday morning.

FP3 will give the drivers and teams one last chance to complete some running and make sure that all systems are go.

The session should also give us some idea of the pecking order ahead of qualifying later today, but most are expecting Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to sit on top of the timesheets once again.

Mercedes did not have it all its own way in practice on Friday, as Lewis Hamilton was sidelined for much of the second session thanks to an electrical issue. The Briton still managed to finish P2 behind Rosberg, and would most probably have finished fastest had it not been for traffic on his hot laps.

Trailing in the Silver Arrows’ wake was Ferrari, but the Italian marque will struggle to keep this form up for the rest of the weekend given the known weaknesses of the F14 T car. Looking at the long-run times, it appears that Williams could run Mercedes close during the race, but will need a good qualifying result to really be in the running for a shock win.

Also keep an eye out for the likes of Red Bull, Force India and McLaren, who will all be vying for points at Monza on Sunday.
