Lewis Hamilton was once again the fastest in the third and final practice session for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix with an elapsed time of 1:22.292.
With his fast time, Hamilton completed a sweep of all three practice sessions, as the defending world champion’s Mercedes was also the quickest in the first two practices Friday.
Sebastian Vettel finished second with a time of 1:22:556, followed by his Ferrari teammate, Charles Leclerc (1:22:749).
Haas teammates Roman Grosjean (1:23:113), and Kevin Magnuessen (1:23.334), were fourth and fifth, respectively.
The rest of the top 10: Red Bull driver Pierre Gasly, Valtteri Bottas, Daniil Kvyat, Max Verstappen and Renault’s Daniel Ricciardo.
Robert Kubica was the slowest in a frustrating final practice session for the Williams/Mercedes team. Kubica hit the pit wall while entering pit lane too quickly.
He also was involved in a pit-lane incident with rookie McLaren driver Lando Norris that resulted in Norris being called to the stewards for an unsafe release.
