Ferrari headed up the afternoon practice session, this time with reigning world champion Kimi Raikkonen getting the better of his rivals and going to the top. Morning session leader Felipe Massa went down to third, but the results are encouraging for Ferrari who are looking quite imperious at the moment. Lewis Hamilton squeezed his MP4-23 into second, 0.036s shy of Raikkonen and 0.1s ahead of Massa. The session was stopped briefly to recover the crashed Red Bull of Mark Webber, the Australian going off at T6 and damaging his car.
David Coulthard in the sister Red Bull did well to improve to fourth, while Heikki Kovalainen and Kazuki Nakajima managed to keep similar pace from the morning and go fifth and eighth respectively. Robert Kubica improved to sixth in the BMW, while Nick Heidfeld slipped from seventh to tenth after lunch.
The times are all quite tight, with Raikkonen and Hamilton leading with similar pace and only two seconds separating the top drivers from the those at the bottom, Adrian Sutil aside, that is. Other drivers to take detours were Timo Glock, who slid on the slightly damp track at T4 and damaged his front wing while trying to rejoin the track, and Sebastien Bourdais who also had a lucky escape when he slid on a kerb at T9. The Toro Rosso was undamaged in the incident.
