Sebastian Vettel headed team-mate Mark Webber in final practice as Red Bull continued to dominate the Indian Grand Prix weekend. The two men have been first and second in all three practice sessions and on pure pace Red Bull appear to be on a separate level from the rest.

The start of the session was delayed by 20 minutes because of poor visibility caused by smog, which meant the medical helicopter was not able to take off.

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was third ahead of Sauber’s Nico Hulkenberg as the Lotus and Mercedes cars struggled. Lotus’s Romain Grosjean was fifth and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton 10th.

Ferrari’s Felipe Massa was sixth, ahead of Force India’s Paul Di Resta, Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg and McLaren’s Jenson Button.
