Rosberg quickest Mercedes 1-2 in third Mexican GP practice

Nico Rosberg set fastest lap-time ahead of his team-mate Lewis Hamilton in the third and final practice session for the Mexican Grand Prix.

Rosberg made a fastest lap time of 1:21.083 to beat Hamilton by less than one-tenth of a second as the drivers continued to get to grips with the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit.

Daniel Ricciardo finished third behind the Mercedes drivers, 0.118s down, while Sebastian Vettel was fourth.

His team-mate, though, didn’t have such good fortune as Kimi Raikkonen’s morning ended after just four laps. The Ferrari driver pulled over on the side of the track to park his SF15-T reporting “no power, smoke coming out.”

Local hero Sergio Perez nonstop to pleasure his home fans by charging to sixth place in final practice, finishing ahead of Williams’ Valtteri Bottas and Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz Jr. Felipe Massa ended FP3 ninth, edging out Nico Hulkenberg, who rounded out the top ten for Force India.

Jenson Button’s troubles continued on Saturday morning. A sensor problem with his engine that was cutting the power to his rear tyres demanded yet another engine change for Brit.

Honda goes back to your old engine spec to one of those that had caused the McLaren driver problems on Friday but is confident they’ve resolved that issue. Button managed just four laps in FP3.
