Hello and welcome to ESPN's live coverage of the third and final practice session from Marina Bay in Singapore.
Yesterday we saw Mercedes looking strongest, unsurprisingly, but its hard to gauge the picture emerging behind. Alonso looked strong, as he often does on Friday, and said after the race he was unsurprised by his pace. Red Bull were about three tenths off Mercedes in FP2 but won't have been helped by Vettel being limited to just five laps after an engine problem from Friday's first session.
Oh yeah, and Maldonado crashed....
@KelvinMatingo: It does indeed. Something very special about Singapore, too.
@Siddhesh: There's a possibility of rain but at the moment it looks likely it will stay away. The thing is here, it's so humid that if it did rain the track would dry up very, very quickly anyway.
@KelvinMatingo: I would say driver error, more often that not. He's crashed while driving in a straight line this season, in Belgium, after all.
Some great historic cars distracting a vast amount of the media from their jobs this afternoon.
Looks like Lotus managed to work through the night to fit a new chassis for Maldonado without breaking curfew. Imagine he will owe a few drinks to those chaps this weekend...
Some breathtaking views at Marina Bay. Absolutely superb.
It is. I hope they get good overtime rate!
It 'aint half bad, is it.
@Siddhesh: Doesn't look like it currently, Red Bull are planning on taking one in Russia when they have to change Vettel to a new engine though. Quite a few drivers on the cusp, however, so a failure today could change things.
@KP: Mercedes actually pulled out quite a long stint on it and kept the lap times consistent. Force India are always good in that regard, and were again yesterday.
@Fényország: Williams looked off the pace yesterday, and both drivers were surprised by how behind they were.
I know. Maybe they finally hired someone to man the Twitter account.
@Siddhesh: It shouldn't do, they get plenty of additional sets as the notation says.
@KP: Those teams certainly couldn't run a third car.
Haha, I thought you may have!
@MJ: That would be rather exciting. I personally would love to sit in on their driver meetings, too.
