British GP: Alonso tops final practice  
Alonso in Friday's horrible weather conditions
After crashing out Friday in horrible rain conditions and damaging his Ferrari, last year's British GP winner Fernando Alonso made up for it on Saturday morning at Silverstone. 

Alonso topped the final practice session in dry conditions (finally) at Silverstone, with a fastest time of 1m32.167s, ahead of Jenson Button.

Romain Grosjean was third for Lotus with Sebastian Vettel fourth, Kimi Raikkonen fifth, Lewis Hamilton sixth and Pastor Maldonado in seventh spot, 0.455s down on Alonso's pace.

Sergio Perez ended the session in eighth but also in the gravel trap after spinning at Becketts in his Sauber.

Hi teammate Kumai Kobayashi was ninth in the second Sauber and Nico Hulkenberg rounded out the top 10 for Force India, 0.983s down on the fastest time.

Mark Webber was only 13th, Michael Schumacher 14th, Felipe Massa 16th and Nico Rosberg ended the morning in 18th because of hydraulics issues.
