Nelson Piquet proved fastest during the final free practice session for the French GP, despite several last minute attempts from Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel to overhaul the Renault. Apparently Renault is making progress and is enjoying its home crowd a lot.

Early on in the session, Hamilton quickly took the lead ahead of Raikkonen. However, with 15 minutes to go Piquet came in to prove he reversed his form by topping the sheet with a 1:15.750 . Such time promises good things for Renault's race after Alonso already topped yesterday's second free practice.
