Monaco 2008 - Free Practice 3 // A final hour of practice gives drivers the last chance to perfect setup

Published by Mr. C

It's Saturday morning and the big news for today is that Monaco experienced rain during the evening. At the moment the track is still wet and you can see for yourself on the Casino Square webcam.

In addition weather.com are suggesting there's a 70% chance of rain again during the day (increasing to 90%) for tomorrow.

What will this mean for the F1 cars and free practice today? In short it's likely to be chaos, but maybe only after the teams have played their usual game of who's-brave-enough-to-leave-it-latest. I'm guessing this is the last place teams and drivers want to run 2008 spec cars in the wet, we're in for a spectacular two days!

Not for the first time I'll mention that we'll be following live timing online, and as ITV either can't or won't cover this session, it's TVlizer coverage for us today.

Update: For some reason, as pointed out by Dank in the comments below, 5Live appear to prefer broadcasting commentary of the cricket this morning. Great timing guys!

If you're up and about today do say "hello" and give us all your thoughts / wild predictions for what may happen during this final 60 minute practice session.
