Another slow start to the day, but once the cars were out on track, it was worth keeping an eye on them. The Renault's were trying out a radical new (slow) strategy, whilst Vettel was making the most of being able to get through an actual session.


Heidfeld had issues from the very start, whilst Kubica was very much best of the rest. Hamilton and Kovalainen led the way, looking unbeatable.


A five-place grid drop for Bourdais means that he lines up in 19th place, whilst at the very other end of the grid, Hamilton is ecstatic with the new updates to the car.
