China 2011 - Free Practice 3 results // The Red Bull battle with McLaren continues on Saturday

Published by Christine

With just one hour to finalise the setups for qualifying, the teams were under pressure to make the most of Free Practice 3. Sebastian Vettel held on to his lead to make it three sessions in a row, with two McLaren drivers behind him. Further back, Williams seemed to struggle, and Mark Webber suffered with yet more KERS troubles - only completing 5 laps.
