Massa quickest in Melbourne practice

Felipe Massa continued his impressive winter form - and outpacing of team-mate Kimi Räikkonen - by setting the fastest time in second practice for the Australian Grand Prix.

Kimi's second-place time was four-tenths slower than Massa's 1:27.353 and rookie Lewis Hamilton will be chuffed with third position - just a tenth off Raikkonen and two-tenths quicker than double world champ team-mate Alonso.

The BMWs are looking fast, and both the Williams-Toyotas were quicker than the 'works' Toyotas.

Mucho head scratching will be going on for both the Honda and Toyota teams if they continue to be outpaced by the Super Aguris and the Williams.

Qualifying will be fascinating...
