Ferrari fastest in final practice


The Ferrari pair of Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen topped the timesheets in Saturday afternoon’s final practice session for Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix.

Vettel sedged past team-mate Raikkonen by just 0.040s, with both Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton a further four-tenths of a second behind.

The Williams of Valtteri Bottas was fifth fastest, ahead of Romain Grosjean's Haas, Daniil Kvyat's Red Bull and the second Haas of Esteban Gutierrez.

Williams’ Felipe Massa, running a new nose, and Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo completed the top ten.

Lap times were significantly slower than in Friday evening's second practice session because of the high afternoon heat in in Sakhir.
