MUST-SEE: Hamilton brings an end to FP3 after crashing into the barriers at Monaco

MONTE-CARLO, MONACO - MAY 27: The car of Lewis Hamilton of Great Britain and Mercedes is lifted on

The third and final practice session of the Monaco Grand Prix weekend was brought to premature end when Lewis Hamilton crashed into the barrier, bringing out the red flags and curtailing the rest of the grid's preparations ahead of qualifying.

Hamilton was on a fast lap on a new set of soft tyres and had just set the fastest first sector of the day, but lost the rear end of his car at Mirabeau. Although he tried to correct the slide, he ended up wedged into the barrier.
