Enough with the nonsense, let's get back to racing: Hamilton takes P2 in Turkish GP qualifying

Ferraris' Felipe Massa grabbed the pole for tomorrow's race, with Lewis Hamilton narrowly missing the top spot by only .044 of a second! Incredible.

In fact the times for the occupants of the first two rows (Ferrari and McLaren, naturally) are extremely close; little more than two-tenths separate them. One interesting quirk: while Massa, Hamilton and Kimi Raikonnen were on soft compound tires, Fernando Alonso mysteriously opted for the hard rubber; it netted him P4. Here's the story of qualifying from Planet

Strangely, McLaren set up pitbox spaces for BOTH racecars, perhaps in an attempt to avoid repeating the "mistakes" of the last Grand Prix.
