FP3 Bahrain

By Harry Schofield

Ferrari Dominate all 3 practice sessions

Ferrari stole the lime light yet again in Bahrain in the last practice session before the all important qualifying session.

The two Mercedes of Hamilton and Bottas was 3rd and 4th respectively.

The Red Bull of Verstappen managed 8th place with a lap time of 1.390

Lando Norris had a respectable 7th place with a 1.386

It is all to play for now in the qualifying session, I do suspect the Mercedes have been holding back as per Australia, but Ferrari will have a strong race pace and will suffer in qualifying .
