CANADA GP – FINAL PRACTICE RESULTS

PRACTICE THREE

Lewis Hamilton marked himself out as one of the favourites for pole position as he set the pace in the final practice session for Formula 1’s Canadian Grand Prix.

The Briton was just under half a second quicker than Felipe Massa as the Brazilian raised the hopes of a strong weekend for the Williams team.

Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg was third quickest at the end of the final one-hour practice session on Saturday morning ahead of qualifying.

The Mercedes both set their best times on the soft tyre and were unable to improve on super-softs, unlike the majority of the field.

The top three were trailed by the Ferraris of Fernando Alonso and sixth placed Kimi Raikkonen, as the Italian team maintained its impressive practice pace at a hot and sunny Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve.

They were split by Daniel Ricciardo in his Red Bull in fifth, while his world champion team-mate Sebastian Vettel rounded out the top 10.
