Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel topped his second consecutive session this weekend at FP3. The young German put in a best lap of 1.29.517, which was almost seven-tenths faster than Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg’s time.  Behind the two Germans was Red Bull’s Mark Webber again in 3rd.

Ferrari have turned things around this session. Fernando Alonso finished in 4th and and Felipe Massa 5th followed by Lotus’ Raikkonen in 6th and Lewis Hamilton in 7th.

Romain Grojean, Nico Hulkenburg and Adrian Sutil rounded off the top 10.

Most of the drivers put on the soft tires getting the perfect set up in for Qualifying in less then 2 hours time.

Red Bull and Vettel have the upper hand against Mercedes this weekend. However the Silver Arrows may spring a few surprises in Qualifying. It’s sure going to be an exciting session.
