GP Week : Issue 14
The weekend started brightly for Ferrari. Felipe Massa sent his F2008 to the best time during a damp first session after a limited 14 laps of running, but electronic systems failure in the afternoon left the Brazilian stranded trackside, and in a comparatively disappointing fifth. Raikkonen had no such worries and improved on his morning performance of fifth to record the third quickest time in the drier afternoon session. Qualifying proved frustrating. A combination of a crumbling track surface and a difficulty in heating up his tyres left Massa sixth and Raikkonen a pretty angry third behind Hamilton and Kubica. Raikkonen would be even more upset on Sunday when he was taken out of the race at the pit exit by Hamilton to notch up a second race with no points. Massa on the other hand suffered a fuel rig problem at his first stop and was forced to make an unscheduled stop to take on fuel. He fought hard to finish a fine fifth. Team-By-Team: Canada SCUDERIA FERRARI MARLBORO 1 2 BMW SAUBER F1 3 4 Robert Kubica returned to the scene of his monster 2007 shunt determined to put any thoughts of last season out of his mind, and his domination over team-mate Nick Heidfeld continued through the first two days in Montreal. The German came into the weekend hoping to out-run Kubica for the first time this year, but with the tricky conditions and a number of yellow flags, he made do with fourth and sixth on Friday. Qualifying was another disappointment for Heidfeld, and although he improved on his Monaco performance he nevertheless wound up eighth. Kubica meanwhile looked quick from the word go. Second in both Friday practice sessions, he very nearly took pole on Saturday but was denied by Hamilton. Still, he took a well deserved and hugely promising second on the grid. The promise of the season so far made good on Sunday as BMW recorded not only its first win, but a 1-2 to boot. Kubica was outstanding and Heidfeld, on a different strategy to his team-mate, raced hard and well to bring home maximum points for the team. 34
