Austria - Sebastian Vettel led Ferrari team mate Kimi Raikkonen by a narrow margin to top the final practice for the 2016 Austrian GP on Saturday.

Formula 1 leader Nico Rosberg crashed and caused the session to be red-flagged for 10 minutes. Rosberg was unhurt but his Mercedes was damaged ahead of qualifying later Saturday.

Rosberg hit a curb, spun around, and hit the barrier, his left rear wheel apparently damaged. His fastest lap before the crash ended up being the slowest in the 22-car field.

Vettel penalised

Four-time champion Vettel was .136 seconds faster than Raikkonen. Vettel will be dropped five slots on the starting grid because of an unscheduled gearbox change.

Two-time series defending champion Lewis Hamilton was third in his Mercedes, .210 seconds behind Vettel.

As it happened: 2016 Austrian GP - 3rd practice
