Sebastian_Vettel-F1_GP_Monza_2012-R-02While practice three gets underway the Lotus F1 driver Kimi Raikkonen is the first on the track followed shortly by most drivers while Alonso and Rosberg were the last ones to make the installation lap.

McLaren and Force India showed impressive pace right from the start of the session while Perez had an early incident and retired to the pits with a possible right-rear suspension damage and minutes later Glock remains stopped on track with throttle problems.

The Marina Bay track was slow in the first part of the session despite the rubber accumulated from yesterday and from the GP2 practice and after 30 minutes no driver went below the1:50.000 barrier.

Vettel and Alonso were the firsts to go into the 1:49s while Senna was the first on supersofts meanwhile Webber makes contact with the wall and punctures his right-rear tyre in the same place were Perez went off track.

Last 5 minutes of the session were extremely intense with all cars on track and on supersofts (P Zero Red).
