No track action for Renault ahead of qualifying

Date published: October 26 2019

It is fair to say Renault are not having the best of times at the moment. That continued in FP3 ahead of the Mexican Grand Prix.

Here is how qualifying day is unfolding in Mexico…

There is a nasty bug going around in Mexico City with an estimated 150 team members affected. Will something like this make even Dr Helmut Marko sympathetic?  Course not!

A damp track awaited the drivers for FP3, with the chance of more rain arriving during qualifying.

And, just to add to Daniel Ricciardo’s frustrations…

Daniel Ricciardo wasn’t the only one waiting…sensor issues kept Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari garage.

Meanwhile, things went from bad to worse for Renault…

An ill Pierre Gasly did make his return to the track before FP3 ended, with the action hotting up as the track became drier.

Sitting pretty at the top heading into qualifying was Ferrari, with Charles Leclerc leading Sebastian Vettel by 0.027 seconds.
