F1 2024 British GP – Practice 3 Results

George Russell was fastest in Practice 3 at the 2024 British GP heading the FP3 results ahead of Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone


As the 2024 British Grand Prix race weekend continues and George Russell set the fastest time in Free Practice 3 in his Mercedes, just ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton in the complete British GP FP3 results.

The Mercedes pair edged out McLaren’s Lando Norris after heavy overnight rain left the track sodden for FP3, necessitating the use of intermediate tyres, with precipitation intermitted during the session itself.

A wet FP3 session at Silverstone

The session began with Haas driver Kevin Magnussen setting a time of 1:54.798s, significantly slower than Norris’s Friday benchmark. Early on, Max Verstappen spun at the exit of Brooklands, while Pierre Gasly beached his car in the gravel at Club, causing a red flag.

As conditions slightly improved, Russell noted better track conditions while Valtteri Bottas complained of no grip after a low-speed spin. Hamilton set the pace midway through the session with a time of 1:38.065s, with a drier line beginning to appear in some sections of the track.

In the latter half of the session, Russell posted a 1m 37.529s, securing the fastest time just before another shower reinforced the wet conditions. Hamilton finished a few hundredths behind Russell, while Norris held third place, followed by Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Verstappen.

Fernando Alonso managed to improve late in the session, securing eighth for Aston Martin. Sergio Perez took ninth, and Hulkenberg placed his upgraded Haas in the top ten. Williams drivers Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant, along with Lance Stroll, rounded out positions P11 to P13.

Further down the order, Yuki Tsunoda, Bottas, and Esteban Ocon led their respective teams. Kevin Magnussen, Daniel Ricciardo, Zhou Guanyu, and the sidelined Gasly, who faces an engine penalty, completed the timesheet.
