Traffic is quite likely to be encountered in the final 2 minutes with almost all the field set to be on the track.

Nick Heidfeld ends the final practice session fastest of all in the BMW Sauber. David Coulthard was second quickest in the Red Bull, with Fernando Alonso third, just over three tenths of a second behind the pacesetter Heidfeld.

i guess McLaren and Ferrari were sandbagging...
they were waiting for each other to reveal their true pace.. unfortunately neither of them showed any true pace.
But, I am predicting Ferrari of Kimi will be on pole by a good margin.

Most drivers used the softer tyre to set their best lap of the session in the closing minutes. In contrast, Heidfeld clocked the leading time on hard tyres - suggesting that, for BMW at least, the two tyres are close in performance with the current circuit conditions.

Pole Position is the important factor to win here, it's so difficult to overtake here, I hope Kimi can start from pole and win the race as he did in 2005
