Nico Rosberg set the fastest time in the final practice session ahead of qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix. The session however was cut short as the stewards decided to give a red flag to recover Jenson Button's stricken car.
Earlier on in the session, Hamilton went out for a few laps, only to return to the pits without getting a clean lap in. Fernando Alonso at the time was still in the pits, awaiting for his car to get sorted by his team.
37 minutes into the session, Felipe Nasr caused the first stoppage of the session as he got caught out by tyres being too cold. The Brazilian rookie was weaving to get his tyres up to temperature, but lost control of his car and damaged his car badly.
It was only 10 minutes from the end when Rosberg set his fastest time, just before Jenson Button parked his car at turn 7. The Brit reported a considerable loss of power. The session was subsequently red flagged for a short while to recover the McLaren, but with 5 minutes left on the clock, nobody was really interested to get out for a few more laps, sealing Rosberg's time as the fastest of the session.
