Glock is fastest ahead of Bahrain GP qualifiers

Latest update : 2009-04-25

Toyota's Timo Glock signed the fastest time in the last practice session ahead of the Bahrain GP qualifiers. Felipe Massa gave Ferrari something to smile about as he grabbed the second best time in front of Williams driver Nico Rosberg.

AFP - German Timo Glock topped the times in Saturday morning's third and final free practice session for Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix - and then stopped out on the track with an electrical problem.

The Toyota driver had edged out the Ferrari of Brazilian Felipe Massa and German Nico Rosberg in a Williams as the leading four drivers all clocked times that were inside the pole lap last year.

Defending world champion Lewis Hamilton was fourth fastest for McLaren Mercedes with Finn Kimi Raikkonen fifth for Ferrari ahead of Brazilian Nelson Piquet in a Renault.

Pole Robert Kubica was seventh for BMW Sauber, Japanese Kazuki Nakajima eighth in the second Williams and Italian Jarno Trulli ninth in the second Toyota. German Nick Heidfeld was 10th for BMW.

These positions, however, signalled little of real intent on a day when it was difficult to discern who was driving in preparation for a qualifying lap or a race lap and with many of the teams completing their tyre and fuel-load preparations.

As a result, not much should be read into seeing two-times world champion Spaniard Fernando Alonso of Renault down in 13th place, championship leading Briton Jenson Button and his Brawn GP team-mate Brazilian Rubens Barrichello in 15th and 16th or Australian Mark Webber of Red Bull in 18th.

They are all certain to produce vastly different performances in Saturday afternoon's qualifying hour.
