Lewis Hamilton will go into Qualification a confident man as he set the fastest time of FP3 while Nico Rosberg completed just three laps. Hamilton suffered in the FP2 session yesterday and today Rosberg found himself in the middle of reliability issues.
A gearbox problem ruled Rosberg out of the FP3 session after just one run. However if Rosberg does need to change his gearbox, it would mean that he would land on the track with a 5 second penalty.
With Rosberg out of the way, Hamilton took the lead and went 0.4s faster than closest rival Fernando Alonso. Williams showed the biggest improvement compared to Friday, with Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa third and fourth fastest respectively, both within 0.6s of Hamilton.
Jenson Button who set the fastest first sector on a medium tyre lap was fifth fastest while it was Sebastian Vettel who was sixth quickest for Red Bull. Raikkonen, Daniil Kvyat, Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg rounded up the top ten fastest guys on the track. Kvyat, however, faces a ten-place grid penalty for using a sixth internal combustion engine of the season.
Hamilton is the favourite for pole position at the Italian Grand Prix but is there a twist in the tale. We'll know soon.
