FP2 times;

Early in the session, the Ferrari's were on top, then Kubica topped the timesheets midway - BMW's first and third, Ferrari's second and fourth, then the 2 McLarens. Near closing stages of the session, Hamilton snatched P1.

lol, did anyone actually see it?

Those Canadian marshalls had a tough task manouevering Massa's car through the gap in the wall, and how on earth did Nelson Angelo Piquet manage to set his tyres on fire.
Plus oh so predictable Glock and the now standard FA spin ( :blush: ). Oh, well..
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

well, the smoke actually wasn't from the tyres but the brakes. this circuit is really bloody hard on them. if you have spotted, the mechanics immediately tried to cool them down as soon as they are allowed to get to the vehicle.
