Korean GP - Ferrari up the front end in Korea
A competitive Ferrari fought all the way to the end for the front rows during qualifying for the Korean Grand Prix. At the end of the three very closely contested sessions, Fernando Alonso set the fourth fastest time and, on the grid, will find himself directly in front of his team-mate, Felipe Massa, who set the sixth fastest time in Q3. In the first part, Fernando used two sets of tyres, the first a Soft, the second a Supersoft, while Felipe used just a single set of the Prime. On the first run in Q2, Fernando used the same set of Options he had just used before, while Felipe took his first set of new Supersofts. After running on a second set of Options for the final run in Q2, both Ferrari men ran an identical tyre programme in Q3: a first run on the tyres used just before and the second on the third set of new Options.
