Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa

Hungarian GP – Rows 3 and 4 for the Scuderia

Hungaroring, 27 July – At the end of a very hot qualifying session, Ferrari secured fifth and seventh places with Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa respectively. At one point, the track temperature hit the 50 mark and the drivers in the final top ten shoot-out produced a very exciting session, with the grid positions being decided in the final seconds.

In Q1 both Ferrari men did a single run on the Soft tyres, doing just one flying lap to get through to Q2, the Spaniard in 1.20.652 and the Brazilian in 1.21.004 to go fifth and eighth.

In Q2, they did two runs, first on used Softs and then on new ones. Felipe took seventh place in the dying seconds in 1.20.460 while a bit earlier Alonso did a 1.20.183 to go fifth.

Again, Q3 started with a run on used Softs before fitting the third and final set of new ones. On his very last lap, Alonso took fifth in 1.19.791 while Massa was seventh with a 1.19.929. Pole went to Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes.
