China 2010 - Free Practice 3 // Another hour on the clock for final setups before qualifying

Published by Christine

There's plenty going on in the world itself at the moment, with flights grounded and volcanoes erupting, but it is to Formula One that we turn our attention as FP3 gets underway.

Weather update

China looks set to be in for some sunshine on Saturday, and by a quick glance at the forecast, it may be the only day for the next week or so that will be dry. Weather is always a guess but it really does seem like rain is on the cards for the race.

One to watch

It has to be Buemi, doesn't it? The poor guy was left a passenger as his car seemingly combusted under him. The front tyres just fell right off and he was left heading straight into the barriers. Not only worries over how the car will be affected for Saturday, but also whether Buemi will be a little less confident in his machinery.

Predictions please

Who will be on top for Free Practice 3? Will this bear any resemblance to the result in qualifying later today? Will the weather have any effect on the running? Will the Ferrari drivers be further up the field?
