Nico Rosberg took over the top spot on behalf of Mercedes, with Hamilton eight tenths behind him. Fernando Alonso was best of the rest, with Felipe Massa posting the fourth fastest time - a strong result for the Williams ahead of qualifying. Lotus will be happy to see both drivers in the top ten, Grosjean fifth, whilst McLaren's pace dropped a little from Friday but also saw their duo in the top ten.

Max Chilton ended his session in the gravel, again, after locking up his tyres and running straight on at the corner... again! Caterham and Marussia rounded out the bottom of the time sheets, with Sauber and Force India just ahead of them.
