Bottas on top in final French GP practice
Valtteri Bottas kept Mercedes on top in final practice for the French Grand Prix on Saturday with Formula One championship leader and team mate Lewis Hamilton a close second.
Bottas, 29 points behind the Briton after seven races, lapped Le Castellet's Paul Ricard circuit with a best time of one minute 30.159 seconds.
Hamilton was 0.041 slower on a sunny morning in the south of France.
Mercedes have now been first and second in all three practice sessions and are favourites to chalk up their eighth win of the season on Sunday, and 10th in a row stretching back to Brazil last November.
