German Grand Prix practice live stream: How to watch FP3 online and on TV

At a race where Ferrari’s No 1 driver is coming home and Mercedes have their logo suspended above the track, it was Red Bull who stole the headlines on Friday.

Daniel Ricciardo was fastest of anyone in FP1, edging out Lewis Hamilton by just 0.004 seconds to confirm his assertion earlier this week that the field is catching up with the reigning F1 World Constructors’ Champions.

And Red Bull prove their form further in the afternoon as Max Verstappen topped the timesheets, although he was only able to complete 18 laps due to some “strange noises” while downshifting.

So who will show the quickest pace in FP3 on Saturday morning? Here’s how to make sure you don’t miss a minute.
