Published by Christine

Nico Rosberg proved that Mercedes have the pace to fight for the top positions in qualifying later today, when he posted the fastest time of final practice. With an hour on the clock to make final preparations for qualifying, there was a tiny dusting of rain at the start, but it remained mostly dry. Lewis Hamilton had something of a moment, heading into the gravel, whilst Sebastian Vettel seemed much improved and happier.
