Hello and welcome to ESPN's live coverage of third and final practice for the Monaco Grand Prix. Did you miss us?
This morning is the first time we'll see the all-important qualifying simulations on the supersoft tyre after the rain-affected FP3 on Thursday.
@Pavan: It's a bit overcast but no really dark clouds forming in the distance like there were on Thursday afternoon.
This tweet from Manor looks interesting...
And on a sombre note from Force India this morning...
@Pavan: I haven't heard those rumours. Certainly we've heard nothing to suggest that would be true.
@RogertheCabinboy: Air temperature is currently 18 degrees, track 23 degrees. The teams seemed pretty confident there would be no rain today but it's always difficult to predict with those mountains around.
@Lukeh: Very excited to see what Verstappen and Sainz can do.
Worth noting those two were probably on very limited fuel when they did those impressive FP1 laps but still, it gives us something to look forward to.
The lights go green and Ricciardo and Sainz lead a big train of cars out on track.
I imagine we'll see lots of running this morning - the teams are yet to drive on the supersoft tyres this weekend and only have an hour this morning, rather than the hour and a half afforded to them in FP1 and FP2.
@Pavan: We're still working on ways to improve the re-designed site, which includes bringing in some of the old website's features. It definitely looks a lot nicer, though!
@pietpompies: Well, hopefully Laurence and I are enough to keep you coming back!
Sainz sets the first timed lap of the morning, a 1:23.987.
Perez sets a 1:21.129 to take P1. Verstappen also gets ahead of team-mate Sainz.
Hulkenberg finishes four seconds off Perez with his first lap but that was a classic example of what makes Monaco so difficult. Grosjean backed off because he was too close to Alonso and ended up forcing Hulkenberg to back off from his lap.
Hamilton straight out in the supersoft tyre and sets a 1:19.074.
@IanAU: Those cars just didn't look right at this circuit.
@AusAdam: As I said, we're trying to bring back some of the features that made the old website so popular.
Kvyat has put himself into P2, 1.054s down on Hamilton but on that yellow-striped soft tyre.
Hamilton is absolutely flying on those supersoft tyres and he shaves 1.5s off his benchmark.
Hamilton clearly fully focussed on this afternoon's qualifying session.
@IanAU: Yep. That's one of the hardest challenges faces the series, I would say.
Rosberg responds to Hamilton's supersoft lap but is four tenths down on his Mercedes rival. He appeared to cross right behind Ericsson's Sauber, so potentially he got held up slightly
Still no site of either McLaren or either Ferrari.
"No front grip whatsoever!" complains Ericsson. That's a little bit of an issue at Monte Carlo, I'd say.
