Sebastian Vettel topped the final session of free practice for the Turkish Grand Prix with a time of 1:26.037 despite failing to do any dry weather running on Friday due to his accident exiting Istanbul Park's Turn 8.
Mercedes continues to look a bigger threat with Michael Schumacher setting the second quickest time of 1:26.038. Both Red Bulls are now in similar specification after a revised exhaust system, of which there was only one, fell victim to Vettel's Friday accident, with Webber (1:26.404) ending up third quickest.
Nico Rosberg was fourth with a time of 1:26.420, his session including a couple of lurid moments at Turn 8, the car looking a bit of a handful through the circuit's landmark quadruple apex high-speed turn.
Jenson Button (1:26.578) and Lewis Hamilton (1:26.726) were fifth and sixth with the two McLarens, ahead of Vitaly Petrov (1:26.755) with the quicker of the two Renaults.
Ferrari again seems to be out to lunch with Fernando Alonso (1:26.819) and Felipe Massa (1:26.883) eighth and ninth, the Spaniard suffering hydraulic problems at the ends of the session. Sebastian Buemi's Toro Rosso (1:27.080) completed the top 10.
