Fernando third and Giancarlo sixth on the grid in Barcelona.

Fernando Alonso:

"I was very pleased with the lap this morning -- I was nearer the limit than yesterday, and only missed out on the front row by a small margin to Mark (Webber). However, in third place I am on the clean side of the circuit, and we know that our real strong point is the pace on the long runs. I am where I need to be to fight for the podium, and hopefully give all the fans something to cheer about."

Giancarlo Fisichella:

"I hit my target again: I am sixth, in the first three rows, after a good lap. The balance of the car was good, and we know that the race conditions favour our car. I am aiming for the podium this afternoon."

Fernando Alonso: 3rd position
Lap time: 1:16.880
Total time: 2:31.691

Giancarlo Fisichella: 6th position
Lap time: 1:17.229
