Adrian Sutil emerged with the fastest time in the final practice session before qualifying at Valencia on Saturday.

The session was one of two parts: before and after the apparent Renault engine failure suffered by Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, which caused a lengthy red flag period to cover his spilled oil with powder.

"We don't know (what happened)," the German said. "Suddenly I lost power and then got stuck. I don't know any more than you."

The slower times set after the Vettel incident, which required a street sweeper to attempt to mop up the leaked oil, meant Sutil's Force India was followed on the time sheets by Kazuki Nakajima and Robert Kubica.
