Lewis Hamilton FAILS to set a time as Max Verstappen goes quickest in final practice for the Turkish Grand Prix… but once again session is marred by low grip track and heavy rain
Max Verstappen completed a free practice clean sweep ahead of this weekend’s Turkish Grand Prix, but slippery track conditions once again proved the main talking point in Istanbul.
The majority of the drivers complained throughout Friday over the severe lack of grip the newly resurfaced Istanbul Park was producing but rain on Saturday exacerbated the problem further in the final session before qualifying.
Verstappen though was quickest once again for Red Bull, with Lewis Hamilton one of three drivers down at the bottom having failed to set a lap time after choosing to stay in the garage.
Charles Leclerc was once more an impressive second for Ferrari while Verstappen’s Red Bull team=mate Alex Albon was third.
