After a difficult opening day, Mark Webber (1:46.081) produced the fastest lap of the Singapore GP weekend so far to top the final session of free practice.

Jenson Button (1:46.108), after missing out on a supersoft tyre run due to his abbreviated Friday session, was second fastest with a lap that looked typically neat and controlled.

Sebastian Vettel (1:46.345) ended up third fastest but the world champion was baulked on his flying lap and lost almost 0.8s in the middle sector, suggesting that once again he is a strong favourite for pole position.

Fernando Alonso (1:46.396) looked highly spectacular, power sliding the Ferrari around and brushing walls en route to fourth quickest lap. He was not totally happy with the car's set-up, however, changing torsion bars relatively late in the 60-minute session.

Lewis Hamilton (1:46.936) locked up and finished the session fifth quickest, ahead of the closely matched Mercedes twins, Nico Rosberg (1:47.831) and Michael Schumacher (1:47.837), the seven times champion losing time with a KERS issue.

Felipe Massa (1:48.711) was eighth with the second Ferrari as Kamui Kobayashi's Sauber (1:49.057) and Adrian Sutil's Force India (1:49.304) completed the top 10.
