Australia 2011 - Free Practice 3 results // Vettel tops the times with Webber close behind

Published by Christine

Saturday in Melbourne saw F1 cars return to the track in cold and breezy conditions, but the rain stayed away to allow plenty of running from all the teams. After installation laps and the obligatory waiting, Red Bull pulled all the stops out to take P1, whilst Petrov and Kobayashi impressed by staying near the top of the timesheets for the full hour. Massa notably struggled, whilst HRT finally managed to get out of the garage.
