2013 Indian Grand Prix: Red Bulls dominate yet again
After a delayed start due to poor visibility, the final practice was shortened to 40-minute session. Both the Red Bull drivers topped the sheets with Vettel ahead of Webber by more than half a second. Webber and the Ferraris were initially on top but Vettel was the first to go out on soft tyres. The difference in lap time was close to 2 seconds as the German driver went on to clock a record 1m25.332s lap time. Webber beat the Ferraris eventually and finished second (1m 25.892s).
