Hamilton quickest in final practice

World champion Lewis Hamilton topped the timesheets in the final practice session for Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix.

Championship leader Nico Rosberg was third in his Mercedes, ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen and last year’s winner Sebastian Vettel in fifth who knocked out a trackside bollard in an otherwise harmless spin at the final corner.

Australian Daniel Ricciardo was sixth for Red Bull, about a second behind Hamilton but ahead of Force India's Nico Hulkenberg in seventh.

Williams' Valtteri Bottas was eighth, the Toro Rosso of Carlos Sainz was ninth and the second Williams of Felipe Massa finished tenth.
