F1 2024 Emilia Romagna GP – Practice 3 Results

Ferrari had dominated FP1 and FP2 but received a major shock in FP3 as McLaren found themselves right in the mix in Imola

-

Sergio Perez and Fernando Alonso both crashed out of the final practice session just before qualifying to thrust the grid into a world of unknowns by preventing anyone from setting their final laps as Oscar Piastri topped Free Practice 3 on Saturday.

Red Bull haven’t appeared to be at the races all weekend and that form continued as Max Verstappen and Perez couldn’t find the lap time needed to beat Ferrari and McLaren, who are poised for a golden opportunity to take their second wins of the season at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola.

Perez lost control of his car after striking the kerbs at Turns 14 and 15, known as the Variante Alta, punching the Mexican a one-way ticket straight to the techpro barriers. It caused a red flag that blocked most of the grid from improving in the dying embers of the session.

As a result, we don’t really know who is genuinely the fastest team. Perez‘s accident came after another Spanish speaker, Fernando Alonso, also found the wall at Turn 18 called Rivazza. He lost the rear of his car and it spun slowly towards the barriers, leaving the oldest driver on the grid out of the session too.
