Bottas Heads Final Practice – Spa FP3

Valtteri Bottas was fastest man in the third and final free practice session for Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix, with Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton in 3rd and 5th respectively after a rain hit session. Daniel Ricciardo was 2nd fastest for Red Bull, with Kimi Raikkonen splitting the Mercedes pairing by going 4th with team-mate Fernando Alonso 6th.

At one point the two Mercedes men were separated by just 0.001 seconds as the track dried out, though world champion Sebastian Vettel got no chance to be a part of the battle after brake problems rendered his Red Bull pit-bound.

There was an interesting and amusing little cameo starring Hamilton and Spa specialist Kimi Raikkonen, with the two men producing identical laptimes not once but twice throughout the course of the hour.

Qualifying is at 13:00GMT
