Sebastian Vettel led the way for Ferrari during the final practice session for the Canadian Grand Prix, which was brought to an early halt due to Kevin Magnussen’s accident.

Magnussen's car snapped left through Turn 7 and he suffered a heavy impact with the wall on the exit of the corner, sustaining substantial damage to the left hand side of the Renault RS.16.

Magnussen’s off brought the session to an end 15 minutes earlier than planned.

Vettel had clocked the quickest time during a session which was affected by occasional light rain.

Vettel’s time of 1:13.919 was 0.239s quicker than Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, as Nico Rosberg placed third for Mercedes.

Kimi Räikkönen, Lewis Hamilton and Daniel Ricciardo completed a top six separated by just over half a second, with weather conditions uncertain for qualifying.

Carlos Sainz Jr. was seventh for Toro Rosso as Fernando Alonso, Sergio Pérez and Felipe Massa rounded out the top 10.

Nico Hülkenberg placed 11th, ahead of Valtteri Bottas, Jenson Button and Daniil Kvyat, who had an off-track excursion at Turn 3.

Esteban Gutiérrez and Romain Grosjean were 15th and 17th for Haas, split by Jolyon Palmer, as Marcus Ericsson finished 18th.

Magnussen set the 19th best time prior to his crash, in front of Sauber’s Felipe Nasr and Manor pair Pascal Wehrlein and Rio Haryanto.
