F1 Las Vegas GP: Russell fastest as red flag ends FP3 early
After a disrupted first day of running, fans were allowed back into the grandstands for the final practice session in Las Vegas. Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz continued their strong performance, leading early on. Red Bull’s Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen also joined the front, with Verstappen setting the fastest lap. Williams’ Alex Albon impressed by splitting the Red Bulls and Ferraris. George Russell topped the timesheet with a lap time that beat Verstappen’s. However, the session was red-flagged five minutes before the end due to Albon’s crash. Russell, McLaren’s Oscar Piastri, and Williams’ Logan Sargeant claimed the top three spots. Ferrari drivers dropped down the order in the final standings.
