Spain 2011 - Free Practice 3 results - Renault suffer a fire, but power Vettel to the top spot

Published by Christine

The main talking point of Free Practice 3 was Nick Heidfeld's Renault bursting into flames midway through a lap. The German navigated to the side of the track and hopped out of the car, but how much damage has been done? Alonso's Ferrari was stuck in gear leaving the team scrabbling to fix it, whilst Vettel remained in the garage for most of the session, but popped out just in time to post the fastest lap in the last few minutes.
