Hamilton comfortably ahead in final practice

Lewis Hamilton topped the final practice session at the Canadian Grand Prix weekend, comfortably edging out Felipe Massa and Nico Rosberg by little less than half a second.

Hamilton suitably continued to be fastest, just like in FP2 on Friday. His dominance however appears to have increased overnight with the Briton now easily ahead while setting his fastest lap on the prime, and theoretically slower Pirelli tyre.

His Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg also didn't set a time on the options, allowing Felipe Massa to get in between the two in the final time table, but a worrying thing to note for the remainder of the weekend, as Mercedes is clearly once again in another league.

Esteban Gutierrez caused the sole red flag of the session, around 15 minutes in when he lost control of his Sauber in Turn 3. He hit the wall with left rear, probably requiring another gearbox, judging from the damage on the car.
