Nico Rosberg was on top of the timesheets again on Saturday morning in Singapore, but the session was interrupted slightly by the local wildlife. Giant lizards were spotted scampering across the track, much as the groundhogs take to the tarmac in Canada. Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton failed to get a low fuel qualifying simulation completed as his difficult weekend continued.

Pascal Wehrlein crashed into the barriers, bringing out the red flags for a brief period as his Manor was recovered to the pit lane with rear wing damage. The team patched him up and sent him back out on track in record time.
