Russell goes quickest on final day at Paul Ricard

George Russell, Paul Ricard 2018
Russell completed an astonishing 60 laps in the evening session

George Russell set day 3’s fastest time but the overall quickest time from the test remains the one set by Lando Norris on day 2.The GP3 champion topped the morning session and came close, but not enough, to beating Lando Norris’ best time set in these three days. The session was stopped thrice: first to recover Nissany’s car, then for Fuoco’s and finally for Markelov and Boschung both stopping on track simultaneously with car problems.

Both sessions were dedicated mainly to long runs, with Russell amassing 60 laps in the afternoon. Günther and Gelael had car problems but both clocked in over thirty laps. Maini was close to finishing the session on top before Albon, with a quarter of an hour to go, beat his time.
