Published by Christine

The forecast rain for Saturday in Melbourne appeared during third practice, but not before Romain Grosjean put his Lotus at the top of the timesheets. It was action stations at the start of the session, as drivers tried to beat the weather. After the rain hit, drivers tried out the wet and intermediate tyres. Sebastian Vettel suffered a hydraulic problem, but there were no major incidents during the hour.
