F1: Kubica tops final practice

img

Robert Kubica set the fastest time at the final free practice session in Monaco. Kubica's time of 1m 14.806 secs beat Ferrari's Felipe Massa's time by 0.046 secs. Finishing third was Mark Webber, while his Red Bull Racing team-mate Sebastian Vettel finished fifth.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton came fourth while teammate Jenson Button was 10th, nearly nine-tenths of a second off Kubica's pace.

It was a good session for the Mercedes duo - Michael Schumacher & Nico Rosberg finished sixth and seventh. 

Fernando Alonso, who topped free practice one and two, was the only casualty of the session. Alonso crashed into the wall at Massenet, losing his right front tyre, and scuppering the car's suspension. He will have to sit out qualifying.
