Ricciardo quickest in the rain hit practice session three in Shanghai.

Daniel_Ricciardo-Chinese_GP-2014-F01The number of laps completed by the formula 1 drivers this morning was low and with the Sunday race expected to take place on a dry track there was little to learn in the rain which prompted Ferrari, Mercedes and McLaren not to run, but at some one driver from each team ventured out and each completed 4 laps.

The fastest time of the session of  1:53.958 set by Daniel Ricciardo was set after just five laps, he was followed by Felipe Massa for Williams and Romain Grosjean was third for Lotus.
