Trulli tops sunny practice 3 in Japan  (GMM)  After Friday's rain and wet track, the sun was out on Saturday morning as Suzuka hosted the final practice session before qualifying for the Japanese grand prix.

The much nicer weather coincided with Timo Glock's reduced fever and return to the Toyota cockpit, as the formula one field got in their first dry laps of running at the venue since 2006.

"His fever has gone down, he's not 100 per cent but well enough to drive," said a Toyota spokesman.

Japan could be a crucial event for Jenson Button, who only needs to score five more points than Rubens Barrichello to be crowned world champion.

But his Saturday practice got off to an awful start when he collided with Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari and broke his front wing on the out lap.

Officially, more rain on Saturday is possible, but the probability of a wet qualifying session at 2pm local is low.
