Vettel’s Red Bull teammate Australian Mark Webber was in fourth place.┬áHamilton had been fastest in the earlier session in scorching hot conditions at the Yas Marina circuit but was unable to match the 25-year-old German’s improved effort in the twilight session that began in daylight and ended under floodlights.

Hamilton’s best lap left him one-tenth of a second short of Vettel’s fastest lap, the champion revelling in throwing his car around the track.
