Button fastest in final Japanese GP practice

Suzuka (Japan): McLaren driver Jenson Button set the fastest time in Saturday`s pre-qualifying practice session for the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix.

The Briton clocked a time of 1 minute, 31.255 seconds at the Suzuka circuit to finish 0.507 seconds ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton. Championship leader Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull was third-fastest.

Button must win Sunday`s race and hope that Vettel finishes out of the points to keep the drivers` championship fight alive. Vettel hasn`t finished lower than fourth this season.
