The Turkish Grand Prix grid was decided earlier, with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa hoping to make three wins from three races at Istanbul. His chances are looking good with the Brazilian on pole position. However, the McLaren’s have pulled something out of the bag and aren’t too far behind, Heikki Kovalainen getting the better of Lewis Hamilton in second. The second Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen will start in fourth. A full report will be posted later today, although I’m currently having connectivity issues, so it may be a little late.
