Last year's Canadian GP winner Sebastian Vettel led a Ferrari 1-2 in Practice 3 for the Canadian GP Saturday morning in Montreal. However, Mercedes has yet to show their full hand.

Vettel's lap of 1m10.843s was 0.139s faster than Charles Leclerc as the two Ferraris were the only cars in the 1m10s bracket.

Lewis Hamilton was 3rd quick in the sandbagging Mercedes 4/10ths behind Vettel while Valtteri Bottas was 4th in the 2nd Mercedes.

Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly finished the session in fifth and sixth respectively ahead of Renault's Daniel Ricciardo, while Lando Norris took eighth for McLaren.

Sergio Perez ended FP3 ninth for Racing Point as teammate Lance Stroll suffered a hydraulic failure that brought his session to an early end and prevented him from setting a lap time. Daniil Kvyat completed the top 10 for Toro Rosso.
