Hartley to miss British GP qualifying after FP3 crash

Hartley to miss British GP qualifying after FP3 crash

But the session was overshadowed by a terrifying crash for Brendon Hartley.

The New Zealander's Toro Rosso auto suffered a front suspension and steering failure at the end of Wellington Straight 14 minutes into the one hour session.

The 28-year-old walked away from the accident and waved to the crowd before travelling to the medical centre for checks.

This is not the first time Toro Rosso has been in the headlines for such an unlikely event. On top of that, the team faces a fix job to ensure Hartley's vehicle is ready for qualifying, which starts at 2pm local time.

But the huge shunt brings worrying safety concerns for Toro Rosso, who were then checking the sister vehicle of Pierre Gasly to try and understand what broke and what went wrong.

The idea of calling a customer service rep and not knowing whether you're talking to a robot or a human is a bit unsettling. Now a company is reportedly looking to use Duplex the other way around: on the behalf of the businesses to talk to people.

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton edged Kimi Raikkonen by less than one tenth of a second to set the fastest time in the session.

Hamilton's mark was seven tenths quicker than his best effort on Friday and was the ideal preparation for qualifying, with the Briton chasing a record sixth victory at his home race.

He was 0.093 seconds faster than Ferrari's Raikkonen and 0.642 better than Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.

Vettel was 1.1s off the pace as a result but still managed to end up quicker than the two Red Bull drivers, with Max Verstappen fifth on a 1m28.012s and Daniel Ricciardo just 0.006s further back in sixth. Leclerc's lap of 1m28.146s left him over a quarter of a second clear of the Haas pair of Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean, while Marcus Ericsson was 10th in the other Sauber.
