Vettel tops final practice

Sebastian Vettel topped final practice ahead of this weekend's Austrian Grand Prix, but championship leader Nico Rosberg crashes after engine failure.

Ferrari driver Vettel posted a fastest lap time of 1:07.098, one-tenth of a second clear of Scuderia team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, with Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton third.

World champion Hamilton suffered blistering on his rear tyres that delayed his run, although he did recover to post a time two-tenths of a second behind Vettel.

But Rosberg was not so fortunate, as with 20 minutes remaining in the session, he ran wide at the exit of Turn 2 after suffering a rear-left suspension failure and crashed into the wall.

Mercedes now face a race against time to get the car fixed in time for qualifying later on Saturday afternoon.

Daniel Ricciardo finished in fourth place ahead of Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen, with the Williams pair of Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa sixth and seventh respectively.

Nico Hulkenberg finished the session eighth for Force India, beating the McLaren pair of Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso into ninth and tenth.
