German GP Three: Charles Leclerc leads the muddy session

GP Qualifying in progress at 2pm with setup from 1pm, exclusively live on Sky Sports F1

Last updated: 21/07/18 12:17

Exercise Three at the German GP was an almost complete washout, as the sky on qualifying day in Hockenheim went up.

Charles Leclerc led the timesheet with 1: 34.577 and led a rare Sauber double victory, while none of the two Mercedes pilots completed a flying lap.

The heavy rain showers and the wet track are a fascinating and unpredictable qualifying that takes place at 14 o'clock on the Sky Sports F1 [13:19:05]. After light rains early in the morning there was a torrential downpour started 15 minutes before the third practice and Carlos Sainz's spin at the beginning of the session seemed to stop the route.

When is the German GP on Sky F1?

Nico Hulkenberg was the only one with a time measurement before many riders came out of the pit towards the end of the hour and Sebastian Vettel completed a one-on-one 4th place behind Leclerc, Marcus Ericsson and Sergey Sirotkin.

Lewis Hamilton, who was in his Mercedes motorhome for most of the session, came just for a round of exploration, as did team-mate Valtteri Bottas and both Red Bulls
