Bahrain pre-season test: Day 3 line-ups

© XPB 

Formula 1's pre-season testing come to its conclusion today in Bahrain, with the third and final day of running at Sakhir.

Teams and drivers will have one last opportunity to put their machines to the test before engineers take stock of the raw data and myriad of information that will hopefully help each outfit gain a conclusive understanding of their car ahead of next week's season opening race at Sakhir.

McLaren's week in Bahrain has been far from smooth, with the Woking-based outfit struggling to get on top of its braking issues. Unfortunately, Daniel Ricciardo will remain on the sidelines today, and even in isolation following the Aussie's positive Covid test.

Therefore, for the third day in succession, Lando Norris will be the papaya squad's sole representative on track, as will be Fernando Alonso for Alpine who will take over from Esteban Ocon.

All other teams will split their final day between their drivers, including Haas where Kevin Magnussen enjoyed a rather spectacular return to F1 on Friday, with the Dane setting a new benchmark time during his team's extra hour of track time.

As usual, the action will kick off at 10:00 local time (07:00 GMT - 08:00 CET), with the day's session breaking for lunch at 14:00 and then running from 15:00 until 19:00 local time (16:00 GMT - 17:00 CET).
