Despite spending the best part of the 60 minute practice session in the garage, Sebastian  Vettel at the end of the session set the fastest time of 1:21.707, 0.084 seconds in front of teammate Mark Webber. Best of the non-Red-Bulls was Michael Schumacher, but already 1.350 seconds adrift of Vettel.
The final practice session had its spectacular moment when suddenly Nick Heidfeld's Lotus Renault was on fire. The German escaped unharmed, whether the mechanics will be able to fix his car for qualifying remains uncertain.

Virgin and Hispania might find it difficult to stay within the 107 percent limit in qualifying, which in practice 3 would have been a time of 1:27.426.
The first row on the grid seems to be set for Red Bull with Mercedes, McLaren and Ferrari fighting each other for second row.
