Sainz prepares for qualifying in the wet, Leclerc will start last

Carlos Sainz set tenth time in the third and final free practice session of the Canadian Grand Prix. On the track, very wet due to the rain that has fallen on Montreal since this morning, Charles Leclerc was also seen who, however, did not take any risks, considering that he will take an additional penalty after the replacement of the power unit, and did not score any time.

23 turns. Both Charles and Carlos took to the track with wet tires, the only ones suitable for the amount of water present on the circuit and the very low temperatures of the asphalt (15 degrees). Leclerc, as mentioned, in the five laps he did not set any time while Sainz continued to grind kilometers (18 laps completed during the session) to improve his confidence with the water-soaked track. The Spaniard with extreme wet tires got a 1’35 “858, while once he switched to Intermediate tires, in the second part of the session, he improved to 1’34” 778. Qualifications are scheduled at 4 pm local time.
