Friday's washout conditions meant that F1's teams had just an hour of dry running in the final session of free practice to hone their set-ups for Belgian GP qualifying and race, with Fernando Alonso's Ferrari (1:48.542) finishing the session on top.

Second quickest, 0.14s down, was Kimi Raikkonen's Lotus, many people's top pick for a win this weekend.

Both Saubers also looked to be in good shape, with Setgio Perez (1:48.850) marginally quicker than team mate Kamui Kobayashi (1:48.863).

Jenson Button seemed initially unhappy with the Balance of his McLaren, but finished the session fifth quickest overall (1:49.091), seven slots ahead of Hungaoring winner Lewis Hamilton.

Felipe Massa (1:49.092) put the second Ferrari sixth, ahead of Mark Webber's Red Bull (1:49.164), Romain Grosjean's Lotus (1:49.266), Sebastian Vettel's RB8 (1:49.292) and Paul Di Resta's Force India (1:49.382).
