While on Friday Robert Kubica was twice as good as George Russell, on Saturday morning, the 34-year-old had to admit the superiority of his teammate from Williams. However, the difference between the Field and the British was minimal. It was hardly five hundred seconds.
The worst news for the British team is the loss of the fastest drivers on the dice. On Friday, Kubica and Russell found themselves in a circle in three seconds, while on Saturday the difference again rose by several tens of thousands.

Perhaps the Pole and the British will slightly improve their results, if not for events from the end of the session, when Alexander Albon spotted an accident with a fatal outcome. He fell from the track in the back corner and ran into the belt at full speed. "Sorry, guys," said Toro Rosso to his engineers.
Albon's car torn into small pieces, which made the judges flag a red flag. Since the session remained a few minutes until the end of the session, the contest could not be continued. Fortunately, the 23-year-old left the wreck of a car with his own power.
