After getting back in the saddle following the summer break on Friday, the 20 Formula 1 drivers will hit the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps once again on Saturday morning for the final free practice session for the Belgian Grand Prix.

Nico Rosberg dominated proceedings on Friday at Spa, finishing fastest in both FP1 and FP2 despite suffering a loss of power and a tire blowout in the respective sessions.

Mercedes teammate and current championship leader Lewis Hamilton had a less eventful day, but could not challenge Rosberg for top spot. Their duel in the Ardennes is set to continue on Saturday in qualifying (live on CNBC from 8am ET) as Hamilton goes in search of a tenth pole position in 2015.

FP3 is likely to give us some final clues of the pecking order on Saturday morning as Ferrari, Red Bull and Williams all jostle for position just behind the Mercedes drivers.

Practice on Friday was not only eventful for Mercedes, but also for Lotus’ Pastor Maldonado and Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson.

Both drivers suffered a high-speed crash that brought their sessions to an immediate end. Thankfully, both walked away unharmed, although the same could not be said of their cars.

McLaren failed to deliver the pace increase that had been promised by Honda through its power unit updates. Instead, the team racked up a total of 55 places grid penalty, and more could follow.
