Britain 2012 - Free Practice 3 results // Fernando Alonso posts the fastest time in a drier Silverstone practice

Published by Christine

Final practice ahead of qualifying on Saturday at Silverstone saw Fernando Alonso head to the top of the timesheets. The Ferrari driver finished the session ahead of Jenson Button and Romain Grosjean. Meanwhile, Charles Pic had great trouble keeping his car going, stopping not once but twice out on track - and getting in everybody's way while he was at it. Both Sauber drivers had some off track experiences, but it was Kobayashi who returned to the pit lane minus a front wing.
