The last free practice of the Tuscan GP took place in a familiar command for the tip. From the viewers ’point of view, the step marks to the times are more tingling than to the times.
Valtteri Bottas was at the forefront of his Mercedes, in every session this weekend. Max Verstappen however, at the end of the session, he was second only to 0.017 seconds left of the Finn. Pile fighting is also guaranteed to be included Lewis Hamilton, who was 0.08 seconds behind his teammate.
There is enough excitement behind the top drivers. Racing Points, AlphaTrails, Red Bullin Alexander Albon and even Ferrari Charles Leclerc fighting hard for the next places. The McLarens and Renault may still throw their own spoons into this soup.
Made his F1 driving debut 20 years ago Kimi Raikkonen was on a livelier site than ever. Although the ranking was “only” 13th, Alfa Romeo has been significantly better this weekend than it was earlier this season. Räikkönen’s teammate Antonio Giovinazzi was a notch ahead of the Finn, so the car would seem to work in Mugello.
Räikkönen’s time lap was ruined at the end of the session as Ferrari’s Leclerc drove slowly in front of him. Leclerc raised his hand nicely to his feet as a sign of error.
– I am sorry for Kimi. But I need to be notified if someone comes firmly behind me. Now I ruined his round, Leclerc stated to his team on the team radio.
The time trials of the Tuscan GP will start at 16.00 Finnish time. Iltalehti follows the events live.
