Mattiacci looking on steely eyed in the Ferrari garage. I would love to know what happens at that team now. It Alonso isn't going to McLaren, Mattiacci suddenly holds a lot of power in this situation in terms of who is at Ferrari. But then, I'm purely speculating.
Worth noting Alonso/Mattiacci relationship has broken down this year. Kimi has a contract until 2015, so it would suggest Alonso is the man leaving Ferrari.
Helpfully spelt differently though - Daniil and Daniel!
Rosberg goes P1, and Alonso slots in three tenths behind him.
Massa has improved from his struggles with grip yesterday, it seems, as he's two tenths up on Bottas.
Hamilton is absolutely flying and goes purple in the first two sectors - putting him three tenths clear of Rosberg.
@Max: It seems they are. There is a spare position as a Mercedes customer with Honda's partnership with McLaren.
Ricciardo splits the Williams drivers with his latest time, but he's still a full second and one tenth down on Hamilton.
Hamilton's benchmark a 1:34.210, for those of you asking.
Indeed. Raikkonen trundled slowly back to the pit lane so I will keep you posted on what Ferrari says is the issue.
@RawPace: I'd like to know who is driving where first!!
Hamilton locks up his hard tyres coming through the Hairpin.
Button complaining he's locking his rears into the hairpin, then tells the team what's he going to do to rectify it. Suddenly this weekend is hugely important for the 2009 world champion, you feel.
@freddykruegs: I'd just be guessing if I told you. The fact is they have an old, experienced driver with only a few years left in him, compared to a young, exciting talent who clearly has bags of potential. I know which one I would keep.
Vettel comes into the pits and complains about what sounds like an ERS issue.
Sutil runs across the artificial grass at Spoon.
Replays of that Sutil incident suggest he carried too much speed into the corner.
Hamilton returns to the track.
There's an interesting theory floating around that Alonso could be about to take a sabbatical ahead of a 2016 move to Mercedes, when Hamilton's contract expires. Just a theory, but thought I'd throw it into the mix.
@Max: I don't think teams are making decisions assuming that will the case yet. If that happens, it's likely younger drivers will occupy the third car seats.
@Riversideturn6: Rosberg has just signed an extension and Hamilton has a deal for 2015, so they will both be there next year. Can see Hamilton wanting to leave Mercedes, and I can't see Mercedes wanting to get rid of him either - especially as Lauda is such a big fan.
Only the Marussias are on track now.
