Ferrari watch – Leclerc 12th, Vettel 15th (again behind George Russell of Williams, who is 14th)commentsGet Involved #bbcf1Is Alexander Albon the right man for Red Bull? Why or why not?Max Richmond: As far as racing goes Albon’s fine, his overtakes this year show he’s happy to get his elbows out. His issue is that Red Bull have had Max’s feedback for the last three years while his team-mates change. That means they are focusing on making the car faster instead of more stable.Post updateMax Verstappen is also on the softs and splits the Mercedes pair, only 0.083 adrift of Bottas. This is all set up quite nicely for a three-way battle for pole later on.And maybe some rain thrown in to the mix to cause carnage.Post updateLoads of cars out there now. The Mercedes two are on the softs and Valtteri Bottas has the edge with a 1:43.813. That’s six tenths clear of Lewis Hamilton in second. Then comes Sergio Perez of Racing Point third.Post updateThe clouds are still looking moody but the tiny drizzle of rain has eased up so Lando Norris is back out there on the mediums, so clearly not too slippery. We have another 38 minutes of this session to go.Times so far

Er, that’s it. Haas dominance.ReutersCopyright: ReuterscommentsGet Involved #bbcf1Is Alexander Albon the right man for Red Bull? Why or why not?Jeremiah Kariuki: Red Bull have the advantage in that they can still bring Gasly back to the main team if Albon continues with his not so impressive performance.Sid: Albon seems like a nice chap – too nice, perhaps. Needs to get his elbows out and his head in a more focused place. I’d like to see him do better.Post updateOooh. A bit of rain. Back to the garages for everyone. If it rains in three hours’ time during qualifying then it would be a bit more exciting.All good for RicciardoDaniel Ricciardo was second in FP2 yesterday but saw his session end early as he had to park his car by the side of the track, but all seems fixed and he’s good to go today.Will we see rain?Jolyon PalmerFormer Renault driver on BBC Radio 5 liveI was just thinking: When was the last time we had a wet Belgian Grand Prix? Because I just can’t think of one.All the talk of rain in Belgium; it does rain more than most places and there are dark clouds looming but we don’t get that many rain-affected races. Post updateThe first two times on the board are from the Haas pair, both on the mediums. Early bragging rights for Kevin Magnussen with a 1:45.984 and that’s three tenths better than Romain Grosjean.’I love driving around this track, it’s incredible’Andrew BensonBBC Sport’s chief F1 writerIf you believe Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes were behind Red Bull on pure pace on Friday in Belgium. Literally, they were, in terms of headline lap times. The world champion was ‘only’ third fastest, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen leading the way and the surprising Renault of Daniel Ricciardo second. “I love driving around this track, it’s incredible,” Hamilton said. “It is very close out there. I think the Red Bulls are just a little bit quicker at the moment, but even the Racing Point is right with us and Daniel Ricciardo in the Renault was very close. That makes it exciting, we have some work to do to try to dial in the car a bit more.”Chief engineer Andrew Shovlin said: “Both drivers have struggled a bit with the balance, mainly with a weak front end, and we looked a bit slower than we normally do on a Friday even when the car seems to be working well. On the high fuel runs the midfield appears a bit closer than they did in previous races, so we can probably find a bit of time there.”Still, it would be unwise to expect too much change. The idea that the Racing Point – more than a second a lap slower than Mercedes so far this year – will be equal with Mercedes when it matters is far-fetched to say the least. So expect the black cars to leap forward once running starts on Saturday.This is Spa.Copyright: .This is the Spa circuit, regarded as one of the best in the world.And these are the names of turns you will be hearing about.1 – La Source2-4 Eau Rouge, Raidillon (then the Kemmel Straight)5-7 Les Combes8 – Bruxelles10 – Pouhon13 – Campus14 – Stavelot16 – Blanchimont18-19 ChicaneWe’re offFP3 is up and running.

Give it time.Weather watchHere’s BBC Weather’s Ian Fergusson…’A very difficult day’Andrew BensonBBC Sport’s chief F1 writerFriday was resolutely not a good day for Ferrari, Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel down in 15th and 17th places. Of course, they are unlikely to be that far down come qualifying. Or at least so you’d think. But the drivers were very much not encouraged.“Very difficult day,” Leclerc said. “It is a surprise to be so far back. In P2 we tried quite a lot of things. I tried something quite aggressive on downforce levels but it didn’t really work out so we came back on that. We are just lacking pace on that so we need to work hard to catch back but I don’t expect miracles this weekend.“It doesn’t feel good and it’s sad to see Ferrari so far down but always our work as drivers is to give our best and that is exactly what Set and I trying to do in the car.“We are struggling quite a lot with balance this weekend and normally in the rain the balance only gets worse and the issues in the dry are worse in the rain so it is going to be difficult if we don’t find any solutions if we cannot fix the balance problems of today.“We are struggling with the balance. It is quite unpredictable at the moment but last year and before last year there was very difficult Friday and we managed to come with the solution on Saturday and that is what we are working on for.” Team boss Mattia Binotto said the team were struggling to get the tyres in the right operating temperature window, which might be a function of trying to run the car with too little downforce so it was not generating enough load in the corners of the middle PostThird PracticeBelgian Grand Prix, 29 August 2020
