Hungary - Australian Mark Webber ended the dominance of Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel to set the fastest time in Saturday's final free practice session for the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Vettel had topped the times in both sessions on Friday however the 33-year-old Webber reversed the situation by clocking a best lap time of one minute and 19.574 seconds in the final minutes of the morning session.

Vettel was second fastest, with Spain's two-time world champion Fernando Alonso third for Ferrari.

Alonso, gifted victory by Ferrari's use of team orders in last Sunday's German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, was 1.1 seconds slower than Webber and 0.6 seconds down on Vettel.

Pole Robert Kubica was fourth for the resurgent Renault team, revelling in the demands of the tight and technical Hungaroring circuit, ahead of Brazilian Felipe Massa in the second Ferrari and Briton Lewis Hamilton, the 2008 champion, of McLaren.

Russian Vitaly Petrov was seventh in the second Renault, German Nico Rosberg eighth for Mercedes and Briton Jenson Button, the defending champion, ninth for McLaren ahead of rookie German Nico Hulkenburg for Williams.
