Hello and welcome to ESPN's coverage of third and final practice at the Malaysian Grand Prix.
@renorichter: DRS tweaked and up and running, sir!
@Sammie: What better way to keep your eyes open than the sound of the roaring, throaty screams of the V8 eng.... oh, wait.
@JasonArellano: I'm peachy. Yes, they'll use it all weekend. I've been on the look out for a proper picture to share with y'all.
Here are some stories to whet your appetites this morning/afternoon/evening (depending on where you are joining...
Green flags - we're off! And as with FP2 yesterday its Will Stevens' Manor which leads us out.
Only an hour for this session, remember, unlike the one-and-a-half-hour sessions on Friday.
The Mercs head out in tandem, completing a practice start each and joining the circuit.
@Salman: Not sure exactly, but I would wager there's still a lot more to come. There were whispers in the winter the Honda engine could be within 30bhp of Mercedes when turned up fully.
@mfbull: The problem is Bernie still thinks its the 80s or 90s. I'm sad to see the loud engines go like anyone else but I just don't think throaty, wasteful V8s are where motorracing is going. F1 needs some fresh blood to embrace the brave new world.
@DamonJones: Stevens was well within a second of the 107% time in Friday practice, so if they can do that again in qualifying they'll be good to race.
Speaking of the Honda power unit, Button is on a hot lap.
Oh no, he isn't, as he peels into the pits, That must have been a quicker-than-usual installation lap, then.
@mfbull: You're not wrong there. If Formula E wasn't so farcical I would think the same of that series too.
@Shivan: Personally, yes. I think the move suited all parties. Ferrari was able to move on without Alonso, though I think Arrivabene would have liked him there. For Alonso, he clearly lost all faith in Ferrari's ability to give him that elusive third championship.
Nasr, the hero of Melbourne, crosses to go top with a 1:43.761. Let's see if he can keep up that momentum that weekend after missing Fp1 yesterday.
@RohanMehta: Alonso won't be looking at it solely through the looking glass of 2015. When he spoke in the winter, he kept mentioning 2016 and 2017.
The Red Bulls go first and second at the top, Kvyat lowering the benchmark to 1:41.980.
Replays showing Nasr grappling with that Sauber C34 through the middle sector.
Verstappen on track and runs slightly wide at Turn 4.
