2009 BRITISH GP: ROSBERG AS USUAL IN FP3


Nico Rosberg set the practice pace yet again in the Saturday morning session at Silverstone, this time leading his team-mate Kazuki Nakajima in a Williams one-two.
Their late surge pushed Jarno Trulli back to third, with yesterday's pace-setter Sebastian Vettel fourth for Red Bull.

Jenson Button's low-key weekend continued as the championship leader managed only 12th position, one place behind fellow home driver Lewis Hamilton's McLaren.

With the track damp at the beginning of the session following early rain, it was a long time before anyone came out for a serious run.
