F1 2024 Saudi Arabian GP – Practice 3 Results

The 2024 Formula 1 season continues with FP3 at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, the final practice session ahead of qualifying and the race


Max Verstappen was fastest in the final practice session before the 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, showcasing his speed on soft tyres. The session was interrupted by a significant crash from Sauber’s Zhou Guanyu, causing a temporary halt to proceedings.

Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc was narrowly behind Verstappen, while Sergio Perez ensured two Red Bulls were in the top three. Oliver Bearman, standing in for Carlos Sainz, impressed with a top-ten finish in his unexpected Formula 1 debut.

The practice session saw competitive performances across the field, with George Russell and Lewis Hamilton placing their Mercedes in strong positions. The incident with Zhou‘s Sauber has the team racing against time for repairs before qualifying.
