F1 FP3 Results of the Eifel Grand Prix have gone in favour of the Mercedes duo of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, with Ferrari putting in a shock impressive.
Reigning champion and current championship leader Lewis Hamilton finished behind teammate Valtteri Bottas, who got yet another Free Practice pole.
But the talking point of the session is definitely Ferrari, who has finally put in a performance somewhat expected of them.
This after Charles Leclerc finished in P3, ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, and Sebastian Vettel finished a credible P5.

Further down, the midfield teams McLaren, Renault, Racing Point, and AlphaTauri all put in competitive performances for the Top 10.
One glaring omission was Lance Stroll, who is feeling unwell, and will be assessed before qualifying later today. Nico Hulkenberg could make yet another shock return if Stroll doesn’t recover well on time.
What to look forward to this weekend at the EifelGP?
It should be interesting to see if Verstappen and Ferrari can challenge the Mercedes duo Hamilton and Bottas for the win, with the German outfit looking menacing so far this season.
As usual, the mid-teams’ battle will be between Racing Point, AlphaTauri, Mc Laren, Ferrari, and Renault. The weather played a spoilsport on Friday, and the entire F1 community will be hoping this doesn’t repeat itself on Sunday, in what promises to be a fascinating race at Nurburgring.
