Sergio Pérez leads FP3 over Verstappen at the F1 Belgian GP


Pérez also led FP3 on Saturday at the 2022 F1 Belgian GP, ​​the last session before qualifying. Sainz maintains his candidacy to inherit pole and Alonso was 5th

Under a cloudy sky, with 16 degrees of ambient temperature and 21 on the track, the third and last free practice began at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, where Lewis Hamilton was the first to go out for a spin and the first to register a time in the qualifier with 1m51.794s on soft tyres.

Sergio Pérez lowered that to 1m50.960s, a mark that would be quickly improved by Alexander Albon, with 1m50s050s, before Zhou Guanyu took the benchmark up to 1m47.795s, followed by a tenth by Valtteri Bottas, his Alfa Romeo teammate.

 Unlike what was done on Friday, Max Verstappen's first outing did not see him place himself at the top of the leaderboard, starting at a pace of 1m50s435 the reigning champion and current leader of the drivers' contest.

 The Ferrari drivers took to the track only when the first half hour of the session was about to be completed, and Carlos Sainz took the lead on his first fastest lap by turning 1m46.461s, followed by Charles Leclerc four tenths further back.

 "Checo" Pérez would displace Sainz from the top of the leaderboard minutes later with a lap of 1m45.972s, falling by 0.489s from what the Spanish driver had done, while Leclerc was 0.614s behind after another fast attempt by the Monegasque.
