Behind them, Fernando Alonso had a major twitch in the final corner on Kovalainen’s oil, before the session was temporarily red flagged. This time the Spaniard, Friday’s pacesetter, had to be content with the third-fastest lap of 1m 16.465s. Felipe Massa completed the usual dominant quartet with 1m 16.666s

Takuma Sato obtained the fifth place after a lap of 1m 16.864s, and Nico Rosberg was once again fleet for Williams with 1m 16.975s.

Mark Webber followed them in seventh, taking his repaired Red Bull RB3 round in 1m 17.071s, then came Rubens Barrichello in the improving Honda on 1m 17.329s, David Coulthard in the second RB3 (who survived a very heavy landing over the final corner chicane having already recorded 1m 17.391s). Anthony Davidson completed the top 10 for Super Aguri, also with 1m 17.391s, ahead of Renault Renault ’s Giancarlo Fisichella (1m 17.454s), Honda’s Jenson Button (1m 17.468s) and BMW Sauber’s Robert Kubica (1m 17.601s).

Adrian Sutil was the faster Spyker runner, with 1m 18.270s, while an engine fire kept BMW Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld down in 19th with 1m 18.428s. Alex Wurz also had problems on his way to 1m 18.489s for Williams, then came the hapless Kovalainen on 1m 18.758s and, finally, Christijan Albers with 1m 18.933s in the second Spyker.
