Verstappen still fastest ahead of qualifying

Max Verstappen was still the fastest driver in Jeddah during FP3. Sergio Perez and Fernando Alonso completed the top 3.

There wasn't much action in the first ten minutes of the session, with only a few cars doing installation laps. Meanwhile, Nyck De Vries wouldn't take part in FP3 due to an issue with his power unit.

After the first few laps, Sergio Perez was fastest with the softs, ahead of his teammate by 0.329 seconds. However, Max Verstappen was using hard tires. Alpine was just behind with soft tires, showing good pace after a tough Bahrain GP.

At the halfway mark, it was still Perez ahead of Verstappen, with Gasly, Ocon, Russell, Albon, Hamilton, Norris, Leclerc, and Sainz behind. Both Ferraris used the medium tires.

In the final stages of the session, every team set fast laps to prepare for qualifying. In the end, the top three was Verstappen, Perez, Alonso. Mercedes and Aston Martin were fighting a tight battle, while Ferrari seemed to be struggling.
