HIGHLIGHTS: Relive the action from a wet-dry final practice ahead of Silverstone qualifying as Leclerc heads Albon

Share

Charles Leclerc and Alex Albon both overcame their own electrical issues to take the top two spots in final practice for the British Grand Prix, in a session that saw rain hit the Silverstone circuit for the first time in the weekend.

Leclerc shrugged off missing the entirety of FP2 after an electrical issue struck his Ferrari SF-23 to head third practice, stopping the clocks with a 1m 27.419s – Leclerc only mildly blotting his copybook with a harmless spin at Club once the chequered flag had flown.

His former Formula 2 team mate Albon also had an electrical issue on Saturday morning, but made it out in time to continue his impressive form from Friday, lapping just 0.173s shy of Leclerc, with Fernando Alonso taking P3 for Aston Martin.

Reigning champion and championship leader Max Verstappen was down in P8, meanwhile, with neither he nor his P14-placed team mate Sergio Perez running softs in FP3.

Most drivers did run intermediates, however, as rain hit the track midway through FP3 – with more rain threatening for qualifying at 1500 local time.
