HOCKENHEIM – Charles Leclerc completed a practice clean sweep for Ferrari on Saturday with a scorching lap in the final practice session ahead of qualifying for the Formula One German Grand Prix.
The Monegasque, who was also fastest on Friday, set a time of one minute, 12.380 seconds on a cloudy morning at the Hockenheim circuit.
Max Verstappen was second for Red Bull, 0.168 seconds off the pace.
The Dutchman’s late effort relegated home hero Sebastian Vettel to third, denying Ferrari three-straight top-two practice lockouts.
Valtteri Bottas was the lead Mercedes driver in fourth ahead of Lewis Hamilton who was only sixth as the German marque, who are celebrating 125 years of motorsport involvement this weekend with a one-off livery and 1950s-style team kit, seemed to struggle.
