Lewis Hamilton edges Kimi Raikkonen in FP3 as Brendon Hartley crashes heavily

Big crash for Hartley Hamilton leads final British practice

The front-left suspension of Hartley's auto failed spectacularly as he approached the braking zone for Brooklands corner, which sits at the end of one of Silverstone's long straights. The front wheel of his Toro Rosso auto skewed vertically and Hartley lost control of the vehicle.

When the session restarted with 30 minutes on the clock, only five drivers had set a lap time.

Considered to be one of the fastest tracks of Formula 1, Silverstone Circuit is hosting the British Grand Prix on Sunday and the qualifier for it shortly.

Obviously I've had a few big hits this year and happy to walk away again. As a precaution, Toro Rosso kept Hartley's teammate Pierre Gasly in the garage for the rest of the session as it worked on understanding what had happened.

Hartley emerged uninjured, but his vehicle was unable to be rebuilt in time for qualifying, forcing him to back of the grid for the Grand Prix on Sunday (Monday NZ time).

Gasly's early time, prior to Hartley's failure, left him 19th on the leaderboard.

Hamilton, a five-time victor at Silverstone, posted a best lap of 1:26.722 seconds around the 5.891-kilometre course but Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari was just 0.093 seconds behind.

Bottas finished up third fastest in the second Mercedes, more than half a second down on Raikkonen, while FP2 pacesetter Vettel was only fourth.

The Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo rounded out the top six, but only after an unexpected challenge from the Sauber of star rookie Charles Leclerc.
