Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel is fastest in the final practice session ahead of qualifying for the Indian Grand Prix.

Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel appears to be favourite to clinch pole for the Indian Grand Prix after he finished fastest in the final practice session.

Vettel has finished top in each of the three practice sessions and he looks to be odds-on to extend his drivers' rankings lead by the end of the weekend after championship rival Fernando Alonso was only seventh quickest for Ferrari.

McLaren's Jenson Button finished second-fastest, with Mark Webber in third and Lewis Hamilton in fourth.

Lotus Renault's Kimi Raikkonen produced a solid performance to finish fifth-fastest, while Paul di Resta was 14th for Force India.
