For­mula One: Ros­berg on top again in fi­nal prac­tice

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

ABU DHABI: Nico Ros­berg topped the times ahead of his Mercedes team-mate and world cham­pion Lewis Hamil­ton in yes­ter­day’s fi­nal free prac­tice ses­sion ahead of this week­end’s sea­son-end­ing Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The 30-year-old Ger­man, who is seek­ing to com­plete a win­ning hat-trick in Sun­day’s race, will bid to con­tinue his cur­rent dom­i­na­tion of the newly-crowned three-time cham­pion by se­cur­ing his sixth straight pole in qual­i­fy­ing later at the spec­tac­u­lar Yas Ma­rina cir­cuit. Hamil­ton, who spun dur­ing a near-fran­tic ef­fort to de­liver a fastest lap, has not been on pole in any of the last six races since the Ital­ian Grand Prix on Septem­ber 6. Ros­berg clocked a best lap of one minute and 41.856 sec­onds to fin­ish 0.281 sec­onds ahead of the Bri­ton, whose re­sults have faded since he clinched his third ti­tle at last month’s United States Grand Prix. Four-time cham­pion Se­bas­tian Vet­tel was third-fastest for Fer­rari ahead of Mex­i­can Ser­gio Perez of Force In­dia, Finn Kimi Raikko­nen in the sec­ond Fer­rari and Aus­tralian Daniel Ric­cia­rdo of Red Bull.—AFP
