Bahrain 2008: Free Practice 3 // The final hour of setup time awaits teams and drivers in Bahrain

Published by Mr. C

As Saturday dawns, there's not a whole heap of change to note on the racing front. Teams have now had to make their gearbox ratio selections (a difficult process after yesterdays changeable conditions) and the McLaren mechanics have no doubt had a busy evening with Hamilton's car.

The race weekend official starts here, it's a one hour session, but teams will now be extra careful with their engines from here onwards, although a couple of drivers can ill afford to relax during this session. Vettel struggled considerably in yesterdays second session, as did both Toyota's and Nick Heidfeld so they may be looking to make up lost ground.

There's no live video from ITV for this session so we're back to looking elsewhere. We'll give TVlizer a test and see what that has to offer, while BBC Radio 5Live have audio commentary on their Extra station. Finally there's the ubiquitous live timing from f1.com.

Scream, shout and yell if you're dedicating your Saturday morning to following the cars running in the desert.
