Crash-hit final practice for British F1 GP

Lewis Hamilton has clocked the fastest lap ahead of Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg in the crash-marred final practice for the British Formula One Grand Prix.

The Briton, who was also fastest in both practices on Friday, wound up 0.063 seconds better than Rosberg, who missed the entire second Friday session, with Australian Daniel Ricciardo third, half a second adrift in his Red Bull car.

The session on Saturday was stopped for 18 minutes when Swedish driver Marcus Ericsson crashed heavily in his Sauber. He was unhurt and walked away.

Dutch teenager Max Verstappen was fourth in the second Red Bull, followed by Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari and Valtteri Bottas of Williams.

The qualifying session for Sunday’s grid positions is scheduled to follow on Saturday.
