From the opening lap on Friday, Heikki Kovalainen - to start from the first pole position of his F1 career - has dominated the weekend so far. His advantage over teammate Lewis Hamilton (P4) in qualifying, when the local hero ran into the gravel on his first Q3 run, was a cavernous eight tenths. "Obviously I just pushed a little bit too hard and it's a pity that I missed the front row," the Briton said. -RED BULL-RENAULTFor the first time since 2006, Mark Webber - also P2 in the damp morning practice - is on the front row of the grid; a first for Red Bull. "We're expecting to have some trouble keeping the Ferraris and McLarens behind us (in the race)," the Australian said. David Coulthard lost track time with an oil leak in the morning and is P11.-FERRARIThe red cars have been slightly off-colour at Silverstone, but Kimi Raikkonen pulled out the third best time in Q3. Championship leader Felipe Massa is a lowly P9 after a problem fitting a rear wheel in the decisive Q3. "Compared with last week's test it seems we have taken a step backwards," said team official Luca Baldisserri.-BMW-SAUBERLight and shade in the BMW-Sauber pits; Nick Heidfeld showing some pace with P5, and Robert Kubica - despite looking just two tenths slower than the McLarens in Q1 and Q2 - ultimately stranded in P10 with some sort of technical fault at the rear of his car.-RENAULTFernando Alonso topped the damp morning timesheet, and teammate Nelson Piquet was also top-6. They will line up a promising P6 and 7 on Sunday's grid, with engineering boss Pat Symonds revealing both have "good fuel loads".-TORO ROSSO-FERRARIThe bold letters atop Toro Rosso's post-qualifying press document exclaimed 'Best ever', in tribute to the consistently quick Sebastian Vettel's P8 on the grid, complemented by Sebastien Bourdais, a few tenths arrears as usual (P13).-TOYOTATimo Glock (P12) has looked the measure of teammate Jarno Trulli (P14) at Silverstone, but the pair have not been competitive, despite a promising pre-race test here. "I went for a wet setup in case we have a wet race tomorrow. Now I just hope that will pay off," a disconsolate Trulli said.-WILLIAMS-TOYOTAA bad weekend and qualifying for Williams, with Nico Rosberg's oddly bouncing car dropping out in Q1, and Kazuki Nakajima (P15) faring little better. "We've obviously been trying to find a solution to my suspension problem, but so far nothing has worked," Rosberg said.-HONDAAlong with the slowest Force Indias and Rosberg's struggling Williams, both Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button ignominiously dropped out in Q1, which at the very end was affected by a sprinkle of rain. "I'm afraid that reflects the true potential of the car on a dry track," Barrichello said.-FORCE INDIAGiancarlo Fisichella, who spectacularly spun his car near the end of his last attempt and also had trouble with a loose engine cover, is last on the grid, just bettered by his teammate Adrian Sutil. "We are not too far away from the others," Sutil said.
