3rd practice –Saturday morning

It looks like McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton is back on the pace. The reigning world champion was once again the fastest driver in free practice. On Saturday morning he completed the fastest lap ahead of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.
Championship leader Brawn had a troubled session. Jenson Button was only 11th, and complained over the radio of difficulty with low tyre temperatures and locking front brakes. Rubens Barrichello missed the first part of the session as his mechanics were still working on his car. Barrichello ended 14th in the session.

1 L.Hamilton McLaren 1:31.121
2 F.Alonso Renault 1:31.340
3 F.Massa Ferrari 1:31.351
4 S.Vettel Red Bull 1:31.542
5 M.Webber Red Bull 1:31.610
6 K.Räikkönen Ferrari 1:31.615
7 J.Trulli Toyota 1:31.620
8 N.Rosberg Williams 1:31.690
9 K.Nakadžima Williams 1:31.731
10 N.Heidfeld BMW 1:31.928
11 J.Button Brawn 1:32.009
12 T.Glock Toyota 1:32.022
13 A.Sutil Force India 1:32.104
14 R.Barrichello Brawn 1:32.124
15 G.Fisichella Force India 1:32.135
16 N.Piquet Renault 1:32.223
17 S.Buemi Toro Rosso 1:32.239
18 R.Kubica BMW 1:32.269
19 H.Kovalainen McLaren 1:32.742
20 S.Bourdais Toro Rosso 1:32.883

BTW I’m not going to post results of the qualification since some people watch it delayed and I don’t want to spoil the fun.

After watching the qualifying sessions....as i heard the mclaren only have one set of aero upgrades for lewis...which the front wing channels air away from the car instead of pushing them into the rear wing....its from the CFD computer analysis and somehow the car is more manageable and works better for lewis....

Ouch. If that's true then Red Bull have completely overtaken Brawn in terms of car advantage. +7 laps of fuel yet qualified faster? Wow.

Yep. Probably a good strategy to go by Brawn to go light and get upfront. Given the weather, there's a decent chance everyone might have to pit early anyway

Adrian Sutil qualified quicker than the Ferrari cars despite carrying a greater amount of fuel!
Rubens Barrichello did likewise with team-mate Jenson Button, who will have the lightest car at the start of the race.

I guess if Webber pulls out cleanly at the start, then it will be a challenge for Vettel to beat him for the win unless Vettel manages to overtake the Brawns at the start. It's been awhile since we've had a GP winner in F1, so all the Aussie F1 fans will be cheering on tv tonight! For some reason we are very good at producing motorcycle GP riders, but not so much F1 drivers lol.

I don’t think Vettel can overtake the Brawns. He is heavier and on the dirty side of the track. He may be overtaken by Hamilton who is on the cleaner side and using KERS. Unless rain will change everything.

Good race, I was bummed out about Adrian Sutil. It would have been a great result for him and the team.
