Kimi Raikkonen and McLaren team-mate Juan Pablo Montoya set the fastest times in the two practice sessions at Hockenheim earlier on Saturday.

Raikkonen clocked the quickest lap of the day with a time of 1:14.128 around the 4.574km circuit and will be hoping to transfer his practice form to the qualifying session.

The Finn is 26 points behind Renault's Fernando Alonso in the world championship standings and has admitted he needs to reduce the deficit at Hockenheim.

Raikkonen suffered from engine problems at the last two races in France and Britain, which resulted in a 10-place demotion down the grid, but has still come back to take podium places
