1445: "Trulli has been excellent holding that 3rd position most of the afternoon. Kimi did well keeping it on the road until the end."
Rockingcopsecorner on 606
1440: It's fair to say that Massa is the more pleased of the two Ferrari drivers as he collects his third win of the season. Raikkonen gives a limp wave to the crowd from the podium. Trulli fiddles with his baseball hat but soon breaks into a grin as he ends his podium drought for Toyota.
Lap 70: Kovalainen has one last-ditch attempt to get past Trulli at the Nurburgring but the Toyota man hangs on as the McLaren goes wide.
At the front, Massa takes the chequered flag ahead of Raikkonen. The Brazilian assumes the championship lead. Trulli hangs on to take the final podium place by 0.6 seconds ahead of Kovalainen. Kubica falls back to second in the drivers' standings as he takes fifth for BMW Sauber.
Webber collects sixth for Red Bull while the Renault pair of Piquet and Alonso collect the remaining points.
"The championship table has been turned upside down yet again, thanks to Massa's win. He is the biggest gainer in every sense this afternoon.
BBC 5 Live analyst Maurice Hamilton
Lap 69: Alonso gets caught up in traffic and Piquet takes advantage to slip past his team-mate into seventh.
Lap 67: Kovalainen is tailing Trulli all the way as they chase the last podium place with just 0.6 seconds between them. Trulli has to do a personal best through the first sector to keep the McLaren man at bay.
"Kovalainen needs to be right with him going into Turn Three. He has a couple of car lengths between him and that's not close enough."
BBC 5 Live analyst Maurice Hamilton
Lap 64: Speed merchant Trulli has teased out the gap to the chasing Kovalainen to 0.9 seconds. If he hangs on it'll be his first podium since 2005.
Lap 62: TV replays show a piece of Raikkonen's pesky exhaust flying off and through the air. The Finn looks safe in second but as things stand it would be Massa who would take the world championship lead by two points from Kubica.
Lap 60: Kovalainen is pushing Trulli hard now to take the last podium place. The McLaren is just 0.4 seconds behind the Toyota. Kubica is 0.3 secs behind Kovalainen and then there's a reasonable gap of 7.9 secs to Webber's Red Bull in sixth. There could be a fight on for third place yet.
Lap 58: It's a cliche but it is Massa's race to lose now with 12 laps to go. The Brazilian has a 14.6-second lead over team-mate Raikkonen in second. Massa is racing with a sore neck after he pulled it in an elevator (or lift as you wish) on Friday. He didn't explain what he was doing in the lift to crick his neck but Ferrari won't want any more "Hapless Massa" moments as the race reaches its conclusion.
Lap 57: "There are umbrellas going up in the grandstands does that mean the rain is getting heavier?"
BBC 5 Live commentator David Croft
Lap 54: Massa comes in and gets the job done in 6.3 seconds. He comes back out, nips round the first turn and back in the lead. By the way, light rain is expected for the next few minutes.
"He is clearly very happy with the Ferrari as he should be as the pace is just well ahead of everyone else."
Radio 5 Live analyst Maurice Hamilton
Lap 53: More pits, more pits. Hamilton and Coulthard also come in and expect Massa to come in soon.
Lap 52: Raikkonen comes in to the pits and gets in and out quickly, despite a plume of black smoke. Kovalainen also comes in for his second stop.
Lap 51: Trulli pits as does Piquet. Soft tyres for Trulli.
Lap 50: Webber and Glock pit. The Red Bull driver has to take on the soft tyres.
Lap 47: Hamilton dives past Alonso to steal P12 from Alonso. He might not like it, but the Renault man had no chance of holding off the McLaren.
Lap 46: Kubica returns to the BMW Sauber pits from fourth and rejoins the race in 10th.
Lap 44: Trulli has a real chance to put his speed to good use now as he is set the target of hunting down Raikkonen for second. He is lapping about half a second faster than the Finn and there's enough laps left to make that kind of speed count. Another battle down the field sees Hamilton stuck behind his old rival Alonso - again.
Lap 42: Alonso comes into the pits for a second time from fifth place. Kovalainen is now fifth because he had just passed Webber at the Adelaide hairpin.
Lap 40: Rosberg comes in for his first stop, and he's done really well to last that long on the soft tyres. Raikkonen is hanging in there now - he's lapping a second slower than Trulli, who's looming in third.
Lap 39: Here's what the problem is. Raikkonen's exhaust is broken, it's flapping around which means he's losing power. Massa overtakes his team-mate to take the lead. Ferrari say they are doing their best to bring the car home.
Lap 35: Hmmm Massa looks like he is gaining ground on Raikkonen at the front. He's just 2.2 seconds behind now.
"Perhaps we're reading too much into it but it's worth watching this gap. Raikkonen's engine sounded a little bit rough when he passed us."
BBC 5 Live analyst Maurice Hamilton
Lap 34: Alonso is lapping quicker than fourth-placed Kubica now but he's half a minute behind the BWM Sauber- and this time I'm not getting my seconds and minutes confused. Um.
Lap 29: OK let's sort this out then. Hamilton nips past Rosberg's Williams to move up into 16th place. The McLaren driver wants points but he's going to have to pick his way through the field if he's going to get them. At the front, Raikkonen has a 6.8-second lead over Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa, and as things stands the monotone Finn is trundling to another victory in France. The Ferraris are in a race of their own with more than half a minute ahead of Trulli's third-placed Toyota. And at the end of the lap, Vettel comes in to the pits from fourth as does Heidfeld.
Lap 27: So many pit stops. Once things settle down, we'll have a proper look at how the field lies. Coulthard comes in for Red Bull for fuel and tyres.
Lap 25: Kovlainen returns to the McLaren pits and Piquet comes in at the same time. Piquet is really slow returning to the track and Kovalainen nips past him.
Lap 24: Webber comes back into the Red Bull pits from third. He stays on the hard tyres and comes out in front of Alonso in 10th.
Lap 23: Massa comes into the pits from the lead now which means Raikkonen will take back the lead. Massa also stays on the harder tyres and in an identical stop to Raikkonen is in and out in 9.4 seconds.
Lap 21: Raikkonen pits from the lead and stays on the harder tyres.
Lap 20: Trulli and Kubica pit.
Lap 19: Hamilton does manage to sneak past Alonso and gives him a little bump on his way past too but then he immediately comes into the pits.
Lap 18: Button is heading back to the Honda pits for a second time after coming in earlier for a new nose. He is out of the race.
Lap 17: This could be interesting. Alonso has fed back into 12th place which means the man behind him is...Hamilton.
Lap 16: Raikkonen has set the fastest lap of the race, clocking 1:16.630. His lead over Massa at the front is four seconds now.
Lap 15: Is Alonso doing a three-stopper? He is the first man back into the pits and takes on enough fuel for another 24 laps.
Lap 13: It's official Hamilton has been handed a drive-through penalty and he comes straight back into the pit lane. He's going to have to pick his way through the field again now as he comes back out in 13th behind Nick Heidfeld - which is exactly not where he'll want to be.
"Hamilton did use the run-off area, and didn't take Turn Seven and that really isn't on. He has had to pay a price for that."
BBC 5 Live analyst Maurice Hamilton
Lap 12: Hamilton is pushing Piquet hard now but he cannot find a way past the Renault at the moment. Raikkonen is pulling away at the front, he's now 3.3 seconds clear of Massa.
Lap eight: The stewards are investigating Hamilton. Looks like he might face a drive-through penalty for cutting the chicane when he overtook Vettel. After his pit-lane shunt in Montreal last time out, is Hamilton showing signs of over-eagerness?
Lap five : Hamilton dives past Kovalainen to take ninth and is now breathing down Piquet's neck for eighth as he hones in on some points. Massa is rumoured to have more fuel on board than Raikkonen, so the Finn is going to need to build up a considerable lead if he's to hold onto the lead.
Lap four: Time for a catch up on the fall-out from the first lap. Raikkonen still leads the race with a 1.6 second lead over Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa. The Red Bulls got away really slowly and Coulthard has fallen back to 11th with Webber in seventh. Hamilton is up to 10th and is chasing team-mate Kovalainen. In fact, he clipped the back of Kovalainen's McLaren - the Finn might have to let Hamilton past and on his way. Alonso is in fourth after overtaking Kubica as the Adelaide hairpin.
Lap two: Hamilton is up to 10th and Alonso is really chasing Trulli hard now for third place.
Lap one: Bad start for Alonso as he loses two places to Trulli and Kubica. The Renault man gets past Kubica at the chicane. Hamilton starts aggressively and runs wide as he gets past Vettel's Toro Rosso. Could he be in trouble for that?
1301: Weather update: Rain predicted in next 30 minutes. Let's see how reliable that is, shall we?
1300: OK, we're off on the formation lap. Just to let you know, I'm not going to be doing lap-by-lap updates today so we'll see how that works out.
1259: "Why do the drivers need someone to hold an umbrella over their heads 24/7, is it so hard to hold one themselves that someone is actually getting paid to do it?"
Tom on 606 Good point Tom. Goodness knows how they'd go on at Wimbledon. (Sorry that was me thinking about my own brolly options for the next week of work ahead.)
1257: Yet another change to the grid. Rubens Barrichello starts at the back now after an enforced gearbox change.
1255: "Without a doubt, Ferrari are the overwhelming favourites. To me the big threat are Renault and Fernando Alonso - what can he do?"
Radio 5 Live commentator David Croft
1252: "Tendulkar has more cash. This is quite random, but which one would you like to have dinner with, Metalmouth Ronaldo, Cash-filled pockets Tendulkar, or Finnish fast-car superstar Kimi???"
FoxForever on 606
Thank you Fox (not a Leicester fan by chance are you?). Oh, I'd go for a Little Chef with the Little Master every time, I reckon.
1248: Heikki Kovalainen says "no" to the wet tyres, and he's the sort of man who knows what's what.
1245: A brass band has just struck up a tune on the grid, where all the cars are lined up. There are a few umbrellas being waved. Will it or won't it rain? Mark Webber says the weather looks "interesting". Hmmmm.
1244: "Reports here that Red Bull are carrying more fuel than the cars in front of them. The drivers must be doing well if this is true."
Sakamoto on 606
1237: I have some frankly quite exciting news for you. Amongst the schmoozing celebrities is Brazilian footballer Ronaldo and he is wearing braces on his teeth. What took him so long? Looking much cooler in the paddock is Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. Wonder which of sporting superstar has more cash, Ronaldo, Tendulkar or Kimi?
1233: "A podium position is probably the best Lewis can expect in this race but even that is probably a step too far."
Manufan87 on 606
1230: The pit lane is open and McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen is the first man out to take his place on the grid.
1225: Zut alors, maybe the French farmer was wrong. Sources in France now say the race will be dry.
1223: Ah-ha yes Alonso. There is a lot of chat that the double world champion could well be on for his first podium of the season in France. Here's what the man himself reckons:
"Ferrari are too strong for us no matter what they do. But regarding the other guys on the grid, we can fight with them perfectly for the podium."
And for the stats fans out there, Alonso is only one point away from becoming the sixth Grand Prix driver to amass 500 points.
1216: "I have a sneaky feeling that the Ferraris and Fernando Alonso's Renault are fuelled a bit short. Lewis Hamilton is also light."
Massive_Messon on 606
1206: A little bit of news on the weather for you. No signs of the predicted thunderstorms as yet but sources in France tell me it has started to rain in Magny-Cours. And there are no lengths our 5 Live colleagues won't go to get a reliable forecast, they tell me: "A local farmer says it will rain this afternoon during the race." And no-one is going to argue with a French farmer, right?
1200: Bon apres-midi a tout le monde et bienvenue au Grand Prix de France - and that's as far as my GCSE French goes I'm afraid.
With Kimi Raikkonen on pole ahead of team-mate Felipe Massa, another Ferrari win at Magny-Cours looks on the cards.
Ferrari have won five of the last seven races in France, with Raikkonen taking the chequered flag in 2007, and the Finn says he's looking for a victory to reignite his title defence.
"It's the best possible chance to win the race from the first place. If I was not to win, I would obviously be a bit disappointed," he said.
If things at the front of the race are looking predictable, then maybe Lewis Hamilton will make things exciting as he has to pick his way through the field.
The McLaren driver qualified in third but his 10-place grid penalty, imposed in Canada for his pit-lane collision with Raikkonen, means he starts in 13th.
Team-mate Heikki Kovalainen starts in 10th after he was hit with a five-place penalty for blocking Red Bull's Mark Webber during qualifying.
And Nico Rosberg, completes the list of naughty drivers as he starts from the back of the grid following his 10-place penalty for his part in the Canadian pit-lane incident.
So will there be any surprise in France and can Hamilton get into the points? Join the debate on 606
