Unexpected third free practice session of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix from Formula 1. After a Friday dominated by Red bull, where Max verstappen Y Czech Pérez they stayed with the first places, this Saturday a pilot of the brand of energy drinks was again at the top. However, it is not from the ‘official team’, but from AlphaTauri: Pierre Gasly.
The Frenchman gave a tremendous blow to the rest of the teams and kept the best time of the first part of Saturday. Surprisingly, Gasly scored a lap of 1m42s251. However, not only did he take first place in the timesheets, he also made a huge difference to Checo Pérez, who finished second, and beat Verstappen again.
The Mexican finished three tenths behind Gasly. Far away, but considering the potential of the Red Bulls, nothing he cannot recover. It was 1m42s595 for the one born in Guadalajara. On the other hand, his teammate, Max Verstappen, did not have the expected Saturday. The Dutchman hit the barriers at the start of the free practice session and did very few laps. It was 15th.
The one who took a big step forward was Lewis hamilton. The British rider came off a very difficult Friday, falling out of the top ten in the second free practice session. However, this Saturday he got up in a different way. He was third, although almost half a second behind Pierre Gasly. His teammate had another day that he prefers to forget.
Bottas not only did it not enter the top ten, but it was far from that sector. The Finn was 13th, but more than a second and a half behind the leader. The other side of the coin was given by Ferrari, who reconfirmed that they are in a great moment. Charles Leclerc was fourth in the table, while his teammate, Carlos Sainz, it ended immediately behind him.
