Felipe Massa put his Ferrari on pole for the Turkish Grand Prix on Saturday afternoon, for the third consecutive time in Istanbul Park. But the two McLarens of Heikki Kovalainen and Lewis Hamilton lined up second and third and they will be doing their best to frustrate the Brazilian’s aspirations for his hat-trick of victories. Kimi Raikkonen was fourth for Ferrari and it may be that he is running more fuel than Massa. Robert Kubica put his BMW Sauber fifth on the grid followed by Mark Webber for Red Bull, Fernando Alonso for Renault, Jarno Trulli for Toyota and Nick Heidfeld for BMW Sauberm and David Coulthard for Red Bull.
The race seems to be evenly poised with the two Ferraris at the top separated by the two McLarens. So its going to be an interesting race with Massa looking for Hattrick of victories at Istanbul Park. And Kovalainen is bang with a bang after his disastrous crash at the Spanish Grand prix.
