In a keenly contested Malaysian Grand Prix qualifying,Ferrari F1′s Felipe Massa grabbed the pole position for the 2007 Malaysian Grand Prix. McLaren’s Fernando Alonso came 2nd in the qualifying just edging out Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen. McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton came fourth. The qualifying was quite uncertain with teams playing poker on whether it would rain or not. The competition was so fierce at the end, that hte top four positions were decided only after the session had ended and the drivers were on their final flying laps. Fernando had lapped an exceptional time early on in the session only to see it being quashed at the end.
Renault gave an extremely poor performance with both cars (Heiki Kovalainen and Giancarlo Fisichella) failing to qualify for the last qualifying session. BMW and Williams also gave good performances by clinching places in the top ten.
