The final practice session at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve saw another red flag interruption.

This time it came after the session had already finished – Sauber stand-in Pedro de la Rosa crashing where team mate Kamui Kobayashi did yesterday.

He did so shortly after Sebastian Vettel set a fastest lap of 1’13.381 to lead the session.

But his team mate Mark Webber never made it out of the pits as Red Bull face yet another problem with their Kinetic Energy Recovery System.

Fernando Alonso was second on a 1’13.701, two-tenths of a second faster than Nico Rosberg with the other Ferrari of Felipe Massa close behind.

The two McLarens were fifth and sixth, Jenson Button in front of Lewis Hamilton.
