Hmm, seems to be another fight betwen Ferrari and McLaren ''hmm'' . BMW, Williams, Renault and Toyota are very close to eachother. But I think BMW will be the best of the rest. I think we will see a nice Belgian GP, although it won't be wet... Looking forward to the rest of the weekend $peace

TS reports that Kimi's neck still hurts in brakings. It's not certain yet if it will get better in the race.

318 in eau rouge :(


Ferrari dominated the final free practice session at Spa-Francorchamps, with Kimi Raikkonen beating Felipe Massa to the fastest time by 0.251 seconds.

The Finn led the way for the majority of the morning, setting an early lap in 1:46.137.

He looked set to beat that time when he switched to softer tyres at the end of the session, but after setting a new best sector time in the first third of the lap, he lost time further around the course.

Massa also failed to make any gains on his own soft tyre run, thanks in part to an error at the Bus Stop chicane.

The McLarens were third and fourth, Fernando Alonso lapping 0.370 seconds slower than Raikkonen but beating teammate Lewis Hamilton by just under three tenths of a second.

The Spaniard had joined the session slightly later than the rest of the frontrunners and trailed Hamilton initially before improving at the end of the hour.

BMW's Robert Kubica failed to set a time after coming to a halt with puffs of smoke from the rear of his car on his first flying lap. There was no immediate confirmation of the nature of the failure, or whether an engine change and consequently a grid penalty would be required.

For much of the session the leading four drivers were 1.6 seconds clear of the rest of the field, but that gap closed on the final runs.

Renault's Heikki Kovalainen ultimately took fifth, 0.9 seconds off the pace, ahead of Toyota's Jarno Trulli, Williams' Nico Rosberg, BMW driver Nick Heidfeld, Trulli's teammate Ralf Schumacher and Red Bull's Mark Webber.

Adrian Sutil had run as high as 13th in the revised Spyker, before dropping down to 18th during the final runs.

His teammate Sakon Yamamoto also showed promising pace as he held 16th position in the middle of the session, but he ended practice in the barriers at Fagnes after an apparent mechanical problem at the entry to the chicane.
