Sepang (Malaysia), Sep 30 (IANS) Ferrari’s Formula One drivers maintained their dominance during the free practice sessions of the Malaysian Grand Prix of Formula 1 after lapping the fastest in the third session on Saturday.

The Italian team’s Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen clocked the fastest in the third free practice by covering the Sepang Circuit in one minute and 31.880 seconds, ahead of his German teammate Sebastian Vettel, who was quickest during the second practice, reports Efe news agency.
