Ferrari's Brazilian driver Felipe Massa's love affair with qualifying for the Formula One Turkish Grand Prix continued on Saturday as for the third successive year he took pole position.

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.
