The Renault team was back on top again on Saturday morning in Montreal but BMW continues to show great pace with Jacques Villeneuve and Nick Heidfeld third and fourth in the times ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher. Juan Pablo Montoya was seventh fastest in the second McLaren ahead of Rubens Barrichello's Honda, Felipe Massa's Ferrari and the Scuderia Toro Rosso car of Scott Speed.

The big question is whether this is the new order in F1 now that flexi-wings have been redefined or whether we will see a raather different picture in qualifying and the race.

In the course of the session Michael Schumacher had a spin and was less than happy with one of the McLarens in the final seconds of the session as he was on a flying lap.
