Meanwhile, McLaren had a few mechanical troubles, including issues with the hydraulics, and their attempt at a full Grand Prix distance was thwarted. Lewis Hamilton finished the day fourth for McLaren just ahead of Felipe Massa in the Ferrari.

Further back, Mike Gascoyne sums up the day for Lotus:
