Massa, who recorded a time of 1min 27.617sec for his second pole position of the season, headed off McLaren-Mercedes duo of Finn Heikki Kovalainen and Briton Lewis Hamilton - Massa's stable-mate and reigning world champion Kimi Raikkonen was fourth fastest.

Fast rising Polish driver Robert Kubica took fifth position in his BMW Sauber, in front of Australian Mark Webber (Red Bull) and Spain's two-time champion Fernando Alonso in a Renault.
