The fourth will go into battle tomorrow Fernando Alonso, but the Spaniard consistently outperform during free practice Kimi Raikkonen showed the sixth result, behind Riccardo Daniel (5th place). Seventh qualified Nico at Force India, ahead of both pilots of the team McLaren – Kevin Magnussen (8th place) and Jenson Button (10th place).
