Nico Rosberg

Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg completed his clean sweep of Monaco Grand Prix practice sessions on Saturday morning with a 1m14.378s lap that was nearly seven tenths of a second clear of the rest of the field. He has been fastest in all three practice sessions.

Romain Grosjean was second, ahead of Sebastian Vettel – who had been quickest before the field switched to super-softs, but encountered traffic on his quick late run.

Fernando Alonso's Ferrari and Lewis Hamilton in the 2nd Mercedes completed the top five.

The session was interrupted by two red flags for crashes by Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean and Adrian Sutil.
