Turkish GP 2009: Massa Fastest In FP3

In the final free practice session of the weekend, the man who has won here for the past 3 seasons in a row, Felipe Massa threw a curve ball to the other teams by showing that he could haul an inferior Ferrari around the track in the fastest possible time.

Massa spent most of the session on the top of the table, with a swift lap returning him to top spot after Vettel and Barrichello managed to beat his early benchmark.

Toyota got a resurgence into 2nd and 3rd, while Fernando Alonso is right down the bottom in 19th ahead of former team mate Giancarlo Fisichella – he never has any luck at this track.
