Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen set the fastest time of the morning practice on Saturday in Melbourne, lapping the Albert Park circuit in 1m26.064s. He finished ahead of Giancarlo Fisichella's Renault, which was four-tenths adrift and then the impressive Lewis Hamilton in his McLaren, maintaining the impetus from a good showing on Friday.

The biggest surprise of the session, however, was Super Aguri's Anthony Davidson who set the fourth fastest time of the session.

Felipe Massa was next up in his Ferrari followed by the BMW Sauber of Nick Heidfeld and McLaren's Fernando Alonso.

There are murmurs in the paddock that there will be trouble after qualifying over the question of cars that may or may not be copies of those used by other teams but there are few signs that this will include the Super Aguri. The big question remains the Red Bull-Scuderia Toro Rosso link and whether or not Spyker is going to make a move.
