LIVE: FP3 ahead of the Austrian 2020 Grand Prix!

The second day has arrived during the race weekend in Austria and that means that it is time for Free Practice 3. Can Mercedes be trumped now, or will the team score another 1-2? Follow all events in Spielberg live here.

Mercedes started strong

A lot of attention was on Red Bull Racing ahead of the Grand Prix of Austria, but for the time being it is Mercedes that lead. The German team got a one-two both times during the first two free practice sessions. This gives the "black arrows" a nice starting position for qualifying and the race.

However, Red Bull Racing has not been taken aback. After a somewhat disappointing Free Practice 2, positive reactions came from Red Bull's camp. For example, Max Verstappen drove his fastest lap with a broken front wing. Is there still a lot more for the team on their home track?

Who will finish the top three?

The classic top three in the hybrid era is normally concluded by Ferrari alongside Mercedes and Red Bull Racing. During the winter test, the Italian team seemed to get lost a bit, and during the first day in Austria, they failed to impress. Can they get back together, or will the position be taken over by Racing Point? Copying the chassis from Mercedes seems to have been a golden move for the team.
