Rosberg quickest in final practice session for Canadian GP

Rosberg quickest in final practice session for Canadian GP

Nico Rosberg had the fastest lap Saturday in the final free practice before qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix.
With warmer temperatures heating up the track and most of the teams working on their fuel strategies for Sunday's race, the times were slower than on Friday. Rosberg's Williams clocked 1 minute, 16.355 seconds, a long way off defending race champion Lewis Hamilton's fast lap of 1:15.732 on the opening day of practice.
World champion Kimi Raikkonen was close behind at 1:16.589 in his Ferrari, followed by McLaren's Hamilton at 1:16.725, Felipe Massa in the second Ferrari at 1:16.787 and Kazuki Nakajima at 1:16.898 in the second Williams.
It was a messy 60 minutes, with Renault's Nelson Piquet hitting the wall and spinning twice, both Scuderia Toro Rosso drivers, Sebastian Vettel and Sebastien Bourdais, hitting walls and several other drivers bouncing off the concrete barriers that line the 4.361-kilometer, 12-turn Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
Vettel's crash was the worst, bringing out a nine-minute red flag after the impact spread debris across the track.
