Q2:

Mark Webber topped the time sheets in Q2 with Hamilton 2nd and Nakajima 3rd. The biggest casualty of the session was Rubens Barrichello who only managed P13.

Felipe Massa finished the session in 8th place but crashed into the tyre wall in the final moments of Q2. It was a big impact … It appears that Massa’s helmet was hit by a flying debris before the impact. The piece of debris seems to have fallen off back of Rubens Barrichello’s car. Massa is reported to be OK, he was taken to Budapest hospital.
