Free Practice 3 results - Bahrain Grand Prix 2015 - Hamilton takes over the top spot in Sakhir

Williams are best of the rest Saturday morning

The final hour of running in Bahrain started with the track dusty once again, picking up plenty of sand overnight. Grip was initially limited but started to clear up after drivers struggled around their outlaps.

Jenson Button finally got some running in, to make up for a disappointing Friday, but there was no stopping Lewis Hamilton who topped the times. Sebastian Vettel did manage to split the Mercedes pair, leaving Rosberg third. Daniil Kvyat beached his Red Bull in the gravel, giving the team plenty of work to do to get him back out on track before the end of the session.
