Sebastian Vettel set the fastest time during final practice for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Vettel's time of 1:41.349 was 0.222s faster than team-mate Mark Webber

Lewis Hamilton was third, ahead of Nico Rosberg in fourth, with Romain Grosjean in fifth.

Jenson Button set the sixth fastest time, with Sauber's Nico Hulkenberg and Esteban Gutierrez in seventh and eighth.

Kimi Raikkonen and Jean-Eric Vergne rounded out the top 10.

It was another difficult session for Ferrari as Fernando Alonso set only the 11th quickest time, with Felipe Massa a couple of positions further back in 14th.

The session passed without any major problems for most drivers, although Marussia's Jules Bianchi ended up on the sidelines after stopping on track with 15 minutes remaining.

Bianchi appeared to lose control of his car entering turn two, the car snapping to the right and pitching the French racer into the barriers. It was only a light impact, but it nonetheless caused damage to the front of his MR-02.
