Yet another great day for Ferrari with their drivers finishing on the podium once again but this time separated by Hamilton in McLaren who finished Second ahead of Raikkonen in Ferrari. Massa took the chequered flag to put himself firmly back in championship contention. Hamilton took second place, less than a second ahead of Raikkonen. Kubica finished fourth ahead of BMW Sauber team mate Nick Heidfeld, who made up four places during the race to finish fifth. Alonso took sixth place for Renault ahead of Mark Webber for Red Bull and Nico Rosberg for Williams.
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.
