It was a quiet start to the weekend, with Massa and Alonso getting the first chance at glory. Hamilton wasn't far behind though, and the damp track sets things up nicely for qualifying.

It was all about Massa and Hamilton as they duked it out for the first taste of headlines. Massa won this round, whilst Kimi found himself spinning round.

Alonso took some of the heat off the two championship rivals by stealing the top spot, and Trulli also finished well up the order, despite not feeling too well yesterday.


Most of the team concerns seem to be about the weather and about tyres. Presumably one affects the other, and the data they gathered today would appear to be of the utmost importance. Both Hamilton and Massa appear to still be supremely confident going into Saturday at Brazil.
