Leclerc fastest in final British GP practice
Charles Leclerc led team mate Sebastian Vettel in a Ferrari one-two in final practice for the British Grand Prix on Saturday with Formula One championship leader Lewis Hamilton third for Mercedes.
Leclerc lapped with a best time of one minute 25.905 seconds on soft tyres in cold and drizzly conditions, 0.026 quicker than his four times champion team mate who won at Silverstone last season.
The top three were separated by just 0.049 of a second, pointing to a tight battle in the afternoon's qualifying session. Hamilton has been on pole at the former World War Two airfield for the past four years.
Valtteri Bottas, fastest on Friday for Mercedes, was only sixth on the timesheets.
The bearded Finn is 31 points adrift of five times world champion Hamilton after nine of 21 races, eight of them won by Mercedes. Verstappen won the previous round in Austria.
