Adrian Sutil set the fastest time in the afternoon session at Suzuka but most drivers completed just a few laps as a result of bad weather. For much of the session there was no action at all.

The times were not significant but Sebastian Vettel was second ahead of Sutil's team-mate Tonio Liuzzi, although both men were six-tenths off the pace of the German. Lewis Hamilton was fourth from Kazuki Nakajima, Sebastien Buemi, Fernando Alonso, Jarno Trulli, Jaime Alguersuari and Robert Kubica in tenth.

Kimi Raikkonen in the Ferrari was 11th - his team mate Giancarlo Fisichella 15th. Kamui Kobayashi, standing in for the ill Timo Glock, in the Toyota was 12th fastest.

Neither Brawn went out.
