F1: Malaysia FP3 - Hamilton stays on top for final session

Lewis Hamilton was back on top for the third and final free practice session here at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia, round 16 of the 2016 Formula One World Championship.

The reigning world champion finished almost half a second faster than the Red Bull of Max Verstappen, who is celebrating his 19th birthday here this weekend.

Lewis’ teammate and main championship rival, Nico Rosberg, was a further two tenths behind with the Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen finishing fourth and his teammate, Sebastian Vettel rounding out the top five.

Qualifying is due to get underway within the hour and it is expected that Red Bull will certainly give the Mercedes duo a run for their money…
