After predominantly wet conditions yesterday, the 60 minutes practice three session is starting as a dry one with no rain predicted until in the afternoon.

Fernando_Alonso-Practice_3-P1All the teams rushed out to get as much dry running as possible and the end of the session saw the rain coming back to the track while Alonso tops the time sheet before Hamilton, Perez and Raikkonen who has an rather unimpressive record here of  no less than six retirements.

Mark Webber will join Romain Grosjean and Nico Rosberg in having a five place grid penalty after the Red Bull Racing team identified a hydraulic malfunction to his RB8 and was forced to change the gearbox.
