Vettel tops final practice at Canada

By on
F1 Grand Prix, GP Canada, Circuit Gilles Villeneuveca

Sebastian Vettel pulled off a great lap in the final minutes of FP3 to top the practice times. He went faster than Fernando Alonso who had improved Nico Rosberg's time moments earlier. All top times were unsurprisingly set on low fuel and the softer red tyres.

At the very end of the session, Pedro De La Rosa triggered another red flag as he clipped the barriers at the exit of turn 7 and ended up head on in the barriers on the other side of the track.

Mark Webber meanwhile did not set a time during the session. It was found during his installation lap that there was a problem on his KERS. The team changed it to allow Mark to run at the end of the session, but they finally decided to save it for qualifying.
