Bahrain GP 2009
APRIL 25, 2009
Practice 3 Report - The car in front is a Toyota...
Timo Glock set the pace on Saturday morning in Bahrain but the Toyota driver then pulled off immediately and stopped beside the track. He was a tenth faster than Felipe Massa's Ferrari and three-tenths clear of Nico Rosberg's Williams. Fourth fastest in a rather odd session was Lewis Hamilton in his McLaren, ahead of the Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari, Nelson Piquet's Renault and the BMW Sauber of Robert Kubica.
The top 10 was completed by Kazuki Nakajima's Williams, the Toyota of Jarno Trulli and Nick Heidfeld's BMW Sauber.
Malaysia winner Sebastian Vettel was 11th ahead of Heikki Kovalainen's McLaren, Fernando Alonso's Renault and the Force India of Adrian Sutil. It was odd to see the Brawn-Mercedes of Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello in 15th and 16th but it is unlikely that this will be the case when qualifying gets underway. The final times came from Sebastien Buemi, Mark Webber, Giancarlo Fisichella and Sebastien Bourdais.
We do not expect the order to be the same this afternoon.
