Jenson Button
Without question the McLaren is this year's fastest F1 car and Jenson Button proved that once again by topping practice 3 for the Brazilian GP after his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, led both Friday sessions.  It seems it does not matter who drives the car, it will be fastest.

Button topped final practice at Interlagos with a lap of 1m13.188s, 0.057s clear of Vettel, with Mark Webber third in the second Red Bull.

Hamilton was fourth fastest, two tenths off Button's time.

Romain Grosjean was fifth Lotus and Paul di Resta in sixth.  Nico Hulkenberg is seventh in the second Force India entry, with championship challenger Alonso down in eighth, 0.503s off the pace.
