Nico Rosberg beat Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton to the fastest time in final practice for Formula 1′s Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang. Last year’s title fight runner up Rosberg was quickest after the early runs on the hard-compound Pirelli tyres as Hamilton struggled with the brakes, locking up twice at Turn 9. And in the final 10 minutes of the session, as drivers bolted on the medium tyres for their qualifying simulation runs, Rosberg improved by seven tenths to clock a 1m39.690s.

But at around the halfway point of the session, Rosberg set his fastest time on softs, beating Vettel by 0.715s.
