The final practice session of the 2023 Saudi Arabian GP once again saw Max Verstappen set the fastest time just ahead of his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez, with the pair light years ahead of the other on the grid.
Fernando Alonso was the closest challenger in his Aston Martin, though he was 0.998 seconds behind. Lance Stroll was next up in the sister Aston Martin.
Elsewhere, Lewis Hamilton got himself further up the timesheet, but he was over a second behind frontman Verstappen as Mercedes’ woes continue in Jeddah.
Ferrari didn’t do much better, as they only went on their soft tyre runs towards the end of the session, and were 1.4 seconds behind the Red Bull of Verstappen.
