Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel set near identical times (car is 99%) to lead the final practice session for the British GP at Silverstone Saturday morning.

In a session hit by drizzle for a short period, Leclerc turned a lap of 1m25.905s in his #16 Ferrari to nip Vettel's #5 Ferrari by 0.026s. Leclerc's time was less than one tenth off last year's pole time on the 3.6-mile Northamptonshire airport circuit

Crowd favorite Lewis Hamilton was third just 0.049s back in his Mercedes.

Pierre Gasly continues to perform well this weekend to nip his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen for 4th and 5th.

Last year Hamilton was on pole and Vettel 2nd, but Vettel won the race. Qualifying looks to be a real shootout between the top-three drivers.
