Massa Lap times in Q3
13 11:10.459
14 1:23.305
15 P 1:37.016
16 P 2:20.612

looks like something was horribly wrong or is on one stop strategy :blink:

Saturday at Silverstone provided excitement and drama, thanks mainly to the weather. Rain early this morning meant a wet start to the final practice session, with conditions drying throughout, enabling the drivers to run dry tyres in the final quarter of the session.

The times tumbled all the way through that first hour, giving no real clue as to who was at the top. Fernando Alonso ended the final practice quickest with a late lap.

During the break between sessions, conditions continued to improve and the qualifying session was mainly dry, although the wind picked up considerably this afternoon making driving conditions difficult.

Honda again fell at the first hurdle, as did both Force India cars and Nico Rosberg in the Williams. Both Toro Rossos made it through to round two again, which consolidates their recent upturn in form.

Both Toyotas would fall at the second hurdle, along with Kazuki Nakajima, Sebastien Bourdais and David Coulthard. Sebastian Vettel, having made it through to part two, surprised everyone by going one better and making it into the top ten shootout along with the Ferraris, McLarens, BMWs, Renaults and Mark Webber in the Red Bull Racing machine, who has enjoyed a very positive weekend thus far.

The final ten minute dash for the grid provided incident and talking points aplenty. Sebastian Vettel and Toro Rosso decided one run would do it as they would likely finish tenth anyway. However Vettel would get more than he bargained for.

Lewis Hamilton ran off the road on his first run, Robert Kubica didn't set a time after a mysterious car issue and Felipe Massa set an unusually slow time in the Ferrari. Vettel jumped the latter two drivers, while Hamilton improved on his final run as he went for the pole with the front runners.

Heikki Kovalainen came through it all to claim his maiden pole position in Formula One, with a time of 1:21.049 and Mark Webber sensationally in second place. Webber in fact held the pole briefly in that dramatic minute after the flag, before Kovalainen pipped him with the very last lap of qualifying. Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton start from the second row tomorrow and have two drivers not usually ahead of them to think about tonight.

Something else for all of them to think about is the weather. Rain has been predicted for some time to arrive on raceday.

Webber really is God. He got a Jaguar on the front row, a Williams on the front row a few more times, and now a Red Bull. I think he might be doing an Alonso though - light fuel. Mind you Alonso is sixth and is probably also doing an Alonso, so that quantifies Webber's performance.

Heikki ftw!! :cool:

Yes very strange with Massa.

Ok he couldn´t match the McLaren´s pace this morning after his accident on friday, but he didn´t seem to be as bad as in Q3. Maybe a spin in his second try or a technical problem. Anyway very tough for him, it´s the first time he´s leading the championship in his career and instantly his qualifying is awful. I hope he can recover from that tomorrow.

Well Domenicali on the ITV coverage said that Massa couldn't do a final run because of a problem with a wheel-gun.I guess he made a mistake on his first run and was unable to do a second run,like Kubica

it was a wheel gun problem, Domenicalli said. If it was an off, the cameras would have shown it, like they showed Hamilton's off 37 times!

the BBC's satellite quite accurate for 24 hour forecasts. So there should be a good downpour before the race and maybe during it.

oh, i don't know, but as several drivers went quicker, he was naturally demoted. i think he was P6 before his problem, and then Hamilton and Vettel went faster
