Following a rain-affected second practice session on Friday, the drivers and teams will be keen to get out on track nice and early in FP3 ahead of qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix later today.

Heavy showers meant that the teams were unable to complete any representative running during the second half of FP2 on Friday, but conditions are far brighter for the final practice session on Saturday morning.

The action kicks off at 10am ET, with the final one-hour practice session giving the teams a last chance to perform system checks and setup changes ahead of qualifying this afternoon.

In spite of the rain, Mercedes opted to brave the conditions and send both of its drivers out on track in a bid to learn something in case of a wet race on Sunday.

However, the decision backfired as Lewis Hamilton aquaplaned off the circuit and into the wall at the hairpin, leaving Mercedes with some repair work to do overnight.

Hamilton still managed to finish the day as the fastest driver in both sessions, underlining his love for the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve where he has won three times before.

With teammate Nico Rosberg hot on his heels at the top of the drivers’ standings and Ferrari also looming large this weekend, the Briton is unlikely to have it all his own way in Canada.
