Nico Rosberg hits the top as Felipe Massa is in trouble again in what was free practice three of the British Grand Prix.

Nico_Rosberg-British_GP-Practice_3One short and busy practice session for all the teams just ahead of the qualifying session with both Mercedes cars looking good over one time lap and with Red Bull showing that is right there ready for pole position and victory.

The streak of bad luck of Felipe Massa continued in this session after his team found some problems with his engine and they decided that needs to be replaced, while Pirelli tyres made the spotlight once again when the left rear tyre of Sergio Perez exploded for no apparent reason causing a red flag.

Here are the free practice three results in full:
