Long Beach - Saturday practice 3

Multiple stoppages for a number of incidents made for a frustrating final practice session before this afternoon's qualifying for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
Turn 5 proved to be astonishingly problematic for drivers getting their first taste of dry track conditions on the 1.968-mile, 11-turn temporary street circuit at Long Beach, California.

James Hinchcliffe, Simona de Silvestro, Tony Kanaan, Helio Castroneves, S├ębastien Bourdais and James Jakes all had spins that caused track action to be halted during the hour-long session.
