Australian GP Practice 3: Grosjean quickest as rain hits Melbourne
Romain Grosjean
Romain Grosjean put Lotus on top of the times in final practice for the Australian Grand Prix as the rain hit the Albert Park circuit and Sebastian Vettel hit trouble.

Grosjean posted a best time of 1m26.929s right before the heavens opened and that kept the Frenchman ahead of his rivals until the end.

As they were in yesterday’s first session, Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and teammate Felipe Massa were second and third ahead of Force India's Paul di Resta and Grosjean's teammate Kimi Raikkonen.
