Sutil fastest after Vettel engine blow
Adrian Sutil
(GMM)  Adrian Sutil emerged with the fastest time in the final practice session before qualifying at Valencia on Saturday.

The session was one of two parts: before and after the apparent Renault engine failure suffered by Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, which caused a lengthy red flag period to cover his spilled oil with powder.

"We don't know (what happened)," the German said.  "Suddenly I lost power and then got stuck.  I don't know any more than you."

The slower times set after the Vettel incident, which required a street sweeper to attempt to mop up the leaked oil, meant Sutil's Force India was followed on the time sheets by Kazuki Nakajima and Robert Kubica.
