Ferraris Set Early Pace in Mexican Grand Prix FP3
The opening practice session of the Mexican Grand Prix saw the Ferraris of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz set the first somewhat representative times on the board. Leclerc’s 1m19.283s was the fastest lap, edging out his teammate by 0.166s.
However, their reign at the top didn’t last long as the Mercedes duo of George Russell and Lewis Hamilton soon demoted them. Russell took the lead with a time of 1m18.644s. Meanwhile, the Red Bulls opted to sit out the opening third of the session, choosing to conserve their resources.
Pierre Gasly encountered a bit of trouble during his run on medium tires as he suffered a spin. Although this incident didn’t cause any major damage, it did hamper his progress.
The teams continued to fine-tune their setups and gather data on the track conditions. As the session progressed, the lap times started to drop further, giving fans a taste of what to expect in the upcoming qualifying session and race.
