SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS – Charles Leclerc set the pace ahead of team mate Sebastian Vettel to complete a practice clean sweep for Ferrari on Saturday even as championship leader Lewis Hamilton crashed.
The Monegasque, who was also fastest on the opening day of practice on Friday, lapped the 7-km long Spa-Francorchamps track in one minute, 44.206 seconds.
Vettel, hoping to end his victory drought that goes back to last year’s Belgian race, was 0.451 seconds off the pace.
Hamilton, who leads Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas by 62 points in the overall standings, ended his session in the barriers.
The 34-year-old’s car snapped out of control under braking for turn 12 and ploughed into the tyre wall.
