F1 2024 Spanish GP – Practice 3 Results

Carlos Sainz was fastest in Practice 3 at the 2024 Spanish GP, heading the FP3 results ahead of Lando Norris in Barcelona


As the 2024 Spanish Grand Prix race weekend got underway, Carlos Sainz delighted the home crowd set the fastest time in Free Practice 3, just ahead of Lando Norris in the McLaren, so don’t miss the complete Spanish GP FP3 results.

Less than two tenths of a second separated the top five in the FP3 results with Ferrari, McLaren, Red Bull and Mercedes all setting competitive times as the hunt for pole position begins later.

Charles Leclerc was third in his Ferrari and towards the end of the 2024 Spanish GP FP3 session, he looked to have deliberately drove into Norris during the final runs. Lewis Hamilton and Lance Stroll also had a coming together earlier in FP3 as things got a bit hot under the collar at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Max Verstappen, who was complaining about the Red Bull car on Friday, could only finish in P4, just ahead of George Russell in the Mercedes. Hamilton was fifth with Sergio Perez in the second Red Bull in seventh.

After a tightly contested FP2, where five different teams occupied the top five positions, the drivers returned to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya aiming to secure the best possible grid positions. 

Historically, 30 out of the 33 Grands Prix held at this venue since 1991 have been won from the front row, underlining the importance of the upcoming qualifying session.

Hamilton admitted fault for his incident with Stroll, saying, “I didn’t see him, my bad” on team radio. Alex Albon and Fernando Alonso showcased strong performances, placing their Williams and Aston Martin cars inside the top 10. Oscar Piastri could only manage 10th, slightly behind his McLaren teammate Norris.
