Nothing quite special happened...
Hamilton could do his fastest laps quite soon... and Massa's car is moving a lot, but may be just the lack of grip. Maybe he is pushing hard, but maybe too much. Also Lewis did better laps when he was not pushing too much. When he blocked the wheels his times where not much good.

Sutil 11th??

BMW has not having a good performance yet...

Renaults 5th and 6th... Not a surprise from Alonso, but Piquet?... is he worried about his seat?

What's happening with kimi again?... at the beggining he was doing a great job... but then he disappeared... and his car seems quite more stable than felipe's.

the fact that the guys did not improve their laptime at the end of the session was because of the lack of grip created by the clouds. Thats why they were going off the track

Look at where both the renault drivers are..
