German Grand Prix – 3rd Free Practice

Rosberg quickest with a 1:15.738 from Hamilton (+0.057), Ricciardo (+0.099), Raikkonen (+0.164), Vettel (+0.366), Verstappen (+0.444), Bottas (+0.662), Massa (+0.892), Alonso (+1.178) & Hulkenberg (+1.234)

Sainz, Gutierrez, Kvyat, Perez, Magnussen, Palmer, Ericsson, Nasr, Button, Wehrlein, Haryanto and Grosjean make the rest of the field.

Bottas covered the most number of laps with 28 followed by Massa with 26. Grosjean only managed 4 laps while Button only managed 6 laps. Grosjean does have a gearbox issue and will have a 5 place grid penalty for an unscheduled gearbox change.

While the times at the top are very close, it appears that Mercedes didn’t really push. Pole will be a fight between Rosberg and Hamilton while the 2 Red Bull and 2 Ferrari drivers will fight for the positions behind.
