Pierre Gasly is the other driver to have fallen below 1’17”00. Fourth in this free practice session, he set a very interesting time of 1’16 “930. This performance rewards the work of the mechanics who repaired his car. Friday, his day was interrupted prematurely because of a fire on his AlphaTauri. The Normand was the best French driver in a session where Esteban Ocon finished tenth and Romain Grosjean last. In twenty laps, Charles Leclerc almost made his delay on Valtteri Bottas pass below half a second. The Monegasque finished with a reference time of 1’17”229. It is the sixth fastest time of the day and better than Sebastian Vettel, the driver involved in the incident which hastened the end of these morning tests. For the 20 pilots, all you have to do is study these data to be efficient at 3 p.m. for qualifying.
