India 2011 - Free Practice 3 results // Vettel snatched the top spot in the final minutes

Published by Christine

Lots of little spins and wobbles as drivers continue to get used to the new circuit, and deal with the dust and dirty lines, but there were no major moments in Free Practice 3. Bruno Senna just missed the barriers, having a lucky escape. However, it was a qualifying style shootout for the top spot, as the Red Bull drivers led early on, then were knocked down by Ferrari and McLaren, only to come back fighting. Vettel took P1 in the final moments of the session to set him up nicely for qualifying.
