BARCELONA (REUTERS) - Nico Rosberg turned the tables on Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton in final practice for the Spanish Grand Prix on Saturday.

The Formula One championship leader was quickest with a time of 1min 25.887sec on a sunny morning at the Circuit de Catalunya with Hamilton, winner of the last three races and fastest on Friday, 0.869 slower.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, winner in front of his home fans last year, was third on the time sheets.

Rosberg qualified on pole in Spain a year ago and will be looking to repeat the feat to turn the momentum back his way, after seeing Hamilton whittle the overall lead down to four points in China last month.
