GP Week : Issue 10
The Turkish weekend got off to a pretty appalling start for Ferrari when Raikkonen was forced to sit out most of the morning’s running with a gearbox problem. Felipe Massa, however, was quickest, and that gave the team something very concrete to smile about. In the afternoon it was Raikkonen’s turn to lead the pack, with Massa third. The Brazilian was oozing confidence despite a few spins on a track at which his record spoke for itself. Come Saturday and Massa’s reason for confidence manifested itself in pole position, the third of the season for the team. Raikkonen was fourth in the crucial session, but refused to get too downbeat. After all, he said, he didn’t know how the fuel loads would play out. The Finn’s words rang true 24 hours later, as Hamilton was set up on a three-stopper, but that didn’t stop the Finn being beaten by the Brit. Massa however was simply sparking and racked up a classy win. The Finn’s third position was enough to ensure he kept his championship lead. Team-By-Team: Turkey SCUDERIA FERRARI MARLBORO 1 2 BMW SAUBER F1TEAM 3 4 BMW Sauber spent the first day of the race weekend utterly forlorn and frustrated. Kubica suffered a rear suspension problem in the morning which limited his running, although by the afternoon had finished he found himself sixth in the second session. Heidfeld was seventh in the morning and 10th in the afternoon, complaining bitterly over the cold conditions and the difficulty of heating up his tyres. Kubica too had set-up issues, and both drivers looked towards Saturday. It emerged that their relative positions had been just, however, with Kubica taking the fifth spot on the grid and Heidfeld ninth. Again it was Heidfeld who was the most upset, but he hoped to move up in the race. The duo duly finished fourth and fifth, as best of the rest, and they both declared that in the circumstances their results had been the best achievable outcome. It had been a quiet afternoon at the end of a frustrating weekend, and BMW will hope to be back on terms with the major players in Monaco. 36
