Australia GP – Final Practice Results: 5th

| Source: | | twitter |

A positive start to the day here in Melbourne as Romain lit up the timing boards to go fastest, just moments before the heavens opened above the Albert Park Circuit. With Kimi also placing solidly inside the top five, it’s all to play for as qualifying looms large…


Romain Grosjean put Lotus on top of the times in final practice for the Australian Grand Prix as the rain hit the Albert Park circuit and Sebastian Vettel hit trouble. Grosjean posted a best time of 1m26.929s right before the heavens opened and that kept the Frenchman ahead of his rivals until the end.
