1253: Raikkonen slots on to the front row in second, so Heidfeld takes his first F1 pole.

1251: Heidfeld does even better than Webber and goes fastest by 0.287secs with only Raikkonen to run.

1248: Webber goes fastest by 0.3secs with a very impressive lap.

1246: Alonso also fails to beat Trulli - and lines up third behind Montoya as well.

1245: Montoya goes second fastest, after making a slight mistake on the exit of the fast chicane and having to lift briefly to avoid a major drama.

1237: Michael Schumacher is strong in the first sector, but then makes a couple of mistakes, running wide in Turn 10 and looking unaggressive through the chicane and can only manage fourth fastest.

1235: Barrichello goes second fastest in the Ferrari.

1230: Trulli completes the best lap so far by miles to beat Fisichella by 0.866secs.

1223: Fisichella goes fastest in the Renault by nearly a second.

1217: Liuzzi is on course to beat team-mate Coulthard but brakes too late into the chicane and loses all the time he has gained and more. He slots in third fastest.

1212: Friesacher manages to get the Minardi ahead of Karthikeyan's Jordan by 0.2secs.

1210: Coulthard makes a slow start to his lap, but sneaks into first place ahead of Button by 0.041secs with a strong final sector.

1208: Karthikeyan is nearly four seconds off the pace in a Jordan that looks like a nightmare to drive.

1206: Button sneaks ahead of his team-mate but is still seconds off the pace set by the front-runners in morning practice.

1204: Sato makes a number of small errors on his lap and ends with a time of 1:32.926 - not a good performance on the face of it.

1200: Sato leaves the pits for the first qualifying lap of the weekend.

Takuma Sato will be the first man out followed by Jenson Button, following the BAR-Honda team's two-race ban.

The rest will then qualify in reverse order of the finishing positions from the Monaco Grand Prix, with Kimi Raikkonen having the theoretically advantageous final run.

McLaren set a daunting pace in final practice on Saturday morning, with Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya first and second fastest.

World championship leader Fernando Alonso was more than 0.3secs slower than Raikkonen in his Renault.

BAR-Honda have not yet shown the front-running pace they predicted they would have on their return from a two-race ban - Takuma Sato was seventh fastest on Saturday morning with Jenson Button ninth.

Michael Schumacher, who some believe will be more competitive this weekend following the change in qualifying rules, was 10th.
