Overnight rain meant it was a wet start to the final hour of practice, with drivers testing out the full wets on track in Interlagos. Things soon cleared up to allow slicks to be used, and the lower temperatures aided the Ferrari drivers to move into position behind Mercedes. Rosberg was fastest, ahead of Hamilton, but the gap between them less than a tenth of a second.

There was a brief disturbance with yellow flags being waved due to an umbrella blowing onto the track, whilst Marcus Ericsson was unable to participate in the session at all due to his Sauber car requiring a change of engine.
