    Felipe Massa leads a Ferrari 1-2 as the Italian squad attempt a comeback in Spain

    Ferrari return with 1-2 in final practice

    Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen gave Ferrari a boost by setting the two fastest times in final practice on Saturday morning at Barcelona.

    Massa shaded his team-mate by 0.082s as the Maranello squad showed the improvements it has made to its F60, and probably also benefited from running a lighter fuel load than the ‘usual suspects’ at the end of hour-long session.

    Brawn GP duo Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello took third and fourth, respectively some 0.5s and 0.6s off Massa’s pace, ahead of BMW’s Robert Kubica and Toyota’s Jarno Trulli.

    Lewis Hamilton was seventh quickest for McLaren ahead of Timo Glock in the second Toyota, with Sebastien Buemi ninth for Toro Rosso (fastest of the Red Bull contingent) and Fernando Alonso rounding out the top 10.

    Nick Heidfeld crashed his BMW at turn 12, causing major damage to the left-front corner of the F1.09.

    A full report will follow shortly…
