The final day of F1 pre-season testing at the Bahrain International Circuit is complete.

19 of the 20 drivers were in action on day three as teams completed their final preparations for the new campaign.

Like on day two, running was been curtalied by a loose drain cover on the approach to Turn 11.

This cost teams over an hour of track time as the circuit was repaired, however, it was decided that the lunch break would be abandoned, ensuring no time would be lost, giving everyone the full eight hours as a result.

In a bid to ensure drain holes don't impact next week's season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, it's been reported that they will be filled with concrete ahead of the race weekend. 

In terms of the on-track action, Charles Leclerc rounded out testing by topping the timesheet on the final day. 

Leclerc pipped Mercedes' George Russell and Sauber's Zhou Guanyu, both of whom set late improvements on soft tyres.
