Europe 2009 - Free Practice 3 // One final hour of setup in Valencia before qualifying later today

Published by Christine

Yesterday was a bizarre day in that it was both a slow day but also a somewhat interesting one. I wonder if today will be the same.

Weather update

Still hot, but the morning sessions are usually a lot slower than the afternoon ones. A combination of dust, plus the early green-ness of the track. Watch for improvements throughout the day.

One to watch

Luca Badoer can only do better than yesterday, right? He didn't finish the day last, which is a bonus, but he certainly wasn't looking confident as the sessions wore on.

Predictions please

Will it be Alonso, a Brawn or a Red Bull topping this final session? Will Badoer find some pace? Which rookie will be ahead in this practice session? Will the times bear any resemblance to qualifying?
