Sunday, August 30 Race: 15.10 hours (44 laps
Leclerc did not forgive either on the second attempt and scored seven tenths to a Vettel who regained second place but made a couple of mistakes in the final section of the lap. Monopoli that they couldn’t get from Bahrain. We will see if tomorrow, finally, they get the first win of the year.
The Monegasque Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) was the fastest this Saturday in the third and last free practice for the Belgian Grand Prix, marked by the accident, without major physical consequences, of the Englishman Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), leader of the Formula World Championship One, which caused a red flag midway through the session.

On his best lap, Leclerc covered -with a soft tire- the 7,004 meters of the legendary Belgian track in one minute, 44 seconds and 216 thousandths, 630 less than his German teammate Sebastian Vettel.
They have more problems at Mercedes that we will see if they can get Hamilton’s car ready for qualifying. The Mercedes ended up against the wall in the last sector and destroyed the front of the car. If the chassis is not damaged I would have no problem taking part of the session. Mechanics work nonstop trying to fix it.
Despite everything, it does not seem that the Mercedes are able to snatch pole position from the men in red who have a faster car, especially in the first section of the track. Another who will suffer to enter Q3 is Sainz who confirmed the bad feelings of FP2 yesterday. Mclaren has taken a step back this summer.
The qualifying session, which will order the starting grid for this Sunday’s race, will take place from three in the afternoon and you can follow it on sport.es.
It is scary to say that Ferrari is favorite for pole position in the Belgian Grand Prix. Whenever they are, everything ends up happening so that the forecasts are not fulfilled. It seems that in Spa nothing can take the first place in the table, nor the second. Ferrari is planted in the ‘qualy’ with three doubles in the three free practice sessions and with a Leclerc somewhat above Vettel.

To that we must add that Hamilton ended up against the wall and that Bottas does not finish getting close enough to the men in red. But at Mercedes they always have an ace up their sleeve and they can never be ruled out.
Sainz, for his part, accumulates a 5-position penalty on the grid and also the performance of the Mclaren is not up to expectations in Spa. Both he and Norris, his partner, will suffer to pass to Q3. Follow every detail that happens on the Belgian track with sport.es.

Vettel had the best sector but he made a couple of mistakes again on his lap that justify that time difference. Leclerc wins the game again.
Leclerc’s third pole position of the year and of his career. 7 TENTH HAS GIVEN VETTEL! The Monegasque vueltón is impressive.
POLE POSITION FOR LECLERC! Vettel second!
Vettel paints the first sector purple! Watch out.
Hamilton glued to the rear of Leclerc. He wants his slipstream. Last chance. At the moment the ‘poleman’ is Leclerc.
Vettel can’t beat Hamilton! A couple of German mistakes leave him in third place for the moment.
Hamilton takes the lead, beating Bottas but the Ferraris are coming … LECLERC! First.
Sneak show in the warm-up lap! Hamilton thus takes Bottas ahead.
The two Mercedes leave before the two Ferraris. The 10 cars on the track.
Clock running. 11 minutes to go. Exit Ricciardo, Räikkonen, Pérez and Magnussen.
Let’s go with the main course of the day. If Ferrari does not make pole position today it would be a tremendous fiasco.
Eliminated: Grosjean, Norris, Stroll, Albon and Giovinazzi eliminated.
END OF Q2! New Ferrari dobelete. It would be strange, or not, if they did not repeat in Q3.
Albon is already getting out of the car. It will no longer roll due to its penalty. 3 minutes until the end of Q2!
Formula 1 is performing this week at the Belgian F1 GP and Lewis Hamilton remains in unstoppable mode. At the Spa-Francochamps circuit, the British Mercedes driver has achieved his fifth pole position in this 2020 F1 World Championship.

On his best lap, Leclerc covered – with a medium tire – the 7,004 meters of the legendary Belgian track in one minute, 44 seconds and 123 thousandths, 630 less than Vettel. In the second session, in which the best times were set and in which the two Mercedes, of the Finn Valtteri Bottas and the Englishman Lewis Hamilton – world leader, with 62 points more than the previous one – registered third and fourth in the Times table, just ahead of Mexican Sergio Pérez (Racing Point), who finished a few minutes earlier than scheduled for the session, with his car’s engine problems.
‘Checo’ Pérez stayed, in his best lap, 994 thousandths of Leclerc’s fastest time and set the fifth time in free trials for the first Grand Prix after the holiday break, ahead of Dutchman Max Verstappen (Red Bull) – third in the World Cup, with 181 points, which stopped the clock at one minute, 45 seconds and 394 thousandths.
Sainz, who before the holidays signed two sensational fifth places in Hockenheim (Germany) and Hungaroring (Hungary) and is seventh in the championship, with 58 points, marked the eleventh time of the day in the afternoon test, in which all signed the best times of the day.
The talented Madrid rider stayed, on his best lap, one second and eight tenths behind Leclerc.
The free trials will be completed this Saturday, hours before qualifying that will order the starting formation of the Sunday race, scheduled for 44 laps, to complete a route of 308 kilometers.
Formula 1 arrives at one of its historic temples. The Sp-Francorchamps circuit hosts the Belgian Grand Prix in a new round of the peculiar 2020 World Championship. After two years without winning on the Belgian track, Mercedes comes as favorites to everything. Hamilton and Bottas will fight for a new pole with the permission of a Verstappen who already sent a warning in the free seconds yesterday.

That of Red Bull seems the only trick to avoid a new pace of those of Brackely despite not finding an ideal rhythm in the last free practice, led by Lewis. Also surprising is the pace of the Renault. Yesterday Ricciardo climbed to second place and today it was Esteban Ocon’s turn who emulated his Australian teammate.
