F1 Grand Prix, GP Brazil, Autódromo José Carlos Pace, Interlagosbr

Mark Webber ended the final free practice session at Brazil with the fastest lap on a similarly wet track as on both Friday sessions. He was ahead of the Lotus pair of Romain Grosjean and Heikki Kovalainen.

The session got underway with a very wet track, and during this first half hour only Sauber driver Esteban Gutierrez recorded a timed lap while using the full wets. He eventually ended the session having completed most timed laps of any driver.

As the session progressed, intermediates became possible and both Lotuses emerged at the top of the timesheets. Mark Webber though trounced them at the end. Valtteri Bottas meanwhile impressed again with a 4th fastest time.

In the session, 4 drivers did not set a time, including both Ferraris.
