Belgian Grand Prix – Spa Third Practice

August 29, 2009

Saturday morning, no rain, but cold. The cold was a recurring theme from the various BBC people at the track, with Lee McKenzie saying she was putting her race suit on hours early just to get warm.

On track, the time sheets were mixed up again, Luca Badoer wasn’t slowest overall, he managed to finish 18th, because Nakajima was even slower, and the Red Bull engine problems chose to jinx Mark Webber, meaning he set no time at all this morning.

Romain Grosjean was impressive, posting the fourth fastest time, whilst Alonso could only make 17th, and Nick Heidfeld topped the sheets.
