Teams and drivers are set to head into qualifying for the Russian Grand Prix with scant track data to call upon after each of the three preceding practice sessions suffered disruptions.

With FP1 hampered by an earlier oil spill from a track cleaner and FP2 was washed out by wet weather, Carlos Sainz's sizeable accident in FP3 - which forced an abandonment of the session with more than 20mins remaining - means teams have enjoyed minimal meaningful mileage ahead of this afternoon's all-important qualifying.

Indeed, with teams already forced to pack their work schedules in order to make up for the lost time yesterday, only a handful had set times on the super-soft tyres when the session was stopped by Sainz's accident.

In terms of results, Nico Rosberg was quickest in FP3 after getting his super-soft run in, ahead of Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton, Sergio Perez and Felipe Massa, but the likes of Red Bull and Ferrari had not attempted their low fuel runs by the time the session was scrapped.

Qualifying will get underway at 15.00 local time, 13.00 GMT
