F1 2022 results: Canadian GP – Third Practice session

Fernando Alonso in the garage. Montreal, 2022.

Fernando Alonso topped the final practice of the Canadian Grand Prix as the drivers prepared for a wet qualifying session.

Following the two dry sessions on Friday, the conditions were wildly different on Saturday with every driver stating on the wet tyre.

There was no rush to get out on the track with plenty of the drivers preferring to stay warm inside the garage.

Alonso was the first to venture out on the intermediate tyres but, despite struggling for grip, he set the fastest time of the session with 14 minutes remaining.

The two Red Bulls spent little time on the track with Max Verstappen not appearing until beyond the halfway mark.

Charles Leclerc also did not set a time while his team-mate Carlos Sainz finished P2.

Late in the session, Kevin Magnussen left the track near Turn 3 but was able to reverse it back out of the grass and safely rejoin the track. Minutes later and Verstappen produced a carbon copy of Magnussen’s exit but was also able to get it back on the track.
