Sebastian Vettel’s FP3 session ends early for a precautionary power unit change, no delight even in the last races for the team.
Sebastian Vettel had to leave Bahrain’s track early during the FP3 session of the Sakhir Grand Prix, as Ferrari announces that a precautionary power unit change has been initiated.

The reason has not been announced as of now, but it was not a good sight for Ferrari, as their both cars had to leave the session in middle, as Charles Leclerc’s spin forced him out.
And then this happened with Vettel, making Ferrari end out of the top 10 in FP3. While, Max Verstappen easily topped the session, adding onto Valtteri Bottas’ problem even in the absence of Lewis Hamilton.
Less than two hours left before the qualifying session takes place, and nothing could be worse for Ferrari after this.
Sebastian Vettel’s problems continue even at his end
Vettel has frequently met with bad luck this season, with many technical problems jeopardizing his outputs on the race day. And with him driving for Ferrari for the last few times, this would be just disappointing for him.

Though, before this session, Vettel had better expectations for the qualifying session, as apparently, Ferrari has been devising an experiment, which seems like a good idea to the German.
However, with sudden power unit chaos and spin last night, which reportedly Vettel held the above mention experiment responsible for it, it doesn’t seem the new plans by Ferrari are working at all.
Now, it remains to be seen what Ferrari does in the remaining part of the weekend, a recovery or a blunder?
