Sebastian Vettel remained comfortably at the top of the timesheet in Saturday's final free practice before this afternoon's qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix.
Vettel lowered the Principality's unofficial lap record again with a 1m12.395s lap, leaving team mate Kimi Raokkonen 0.345s in his wake.
Mercedes kicked off the session in catch-up mode after a botched FP2 on Thursday but both Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton remained at a fair distance from their Ferrari counterparts.
The Mercedes drivers sandwiched Red Bull's Max Verstappen in P5 while Daniel Ricciardo was sixth but encountered a brake-by-wire issue in the closing stages of the session.
Toro Rosso's junior bulls Carlos Sainz and Dany Kvyat kept up the momentum, and will be a force to be reckoned with in qualifying.
It was a different story at Force India however with Esteban Ocon clipping the barrier at the Swimming Pool complex and breaking the steering arm of his VJM10.
The Force India crew has its work cut out for itself to repair Ocon's car in time for qualifying.
