Verstappen takes out the cavalry

The Dutchman scored the best time of Libre 3 ahead of the Mercedes with the Ferrari still far, although not too much. Sainz is still stuck to Gasly.


Max Verstappen scored the best time in the third free training of Abu Dhabi and presents his candidacy to achieve the fourth pole of the season and second consecutive. The Red Bull works at Yas Marina, a circuit that traditionally favors him, and to show that Alex Albon finished the session ahead of Ferrari, something very unusual this season. After the Dutchman, Hamilton and Bottas less than a tenth. There will be battle for the final classification of the season. Vettel finished ahead of Leclerc, but his fourth and fifth, respectively, does not bring good news for Maranello in the last race weekend of 2019.

In McLaren code, Carlos Sainz progressed (from 11th to 9th) compared to Friday, but is still far from the positions that his mechanics used in the second part of the season. Even so, Madrid beat Gasly (by thousandths), his great rival in the fight for sixth place in the World Cup with Albon's permission. It would be worth a point more than the French to achieve it while the Thai does not finish in podium position, although the classification will have a trap: the advantage of average tires can allow it to be more advantageous to leave 11th than 9th.
