Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas was third. Bottas set the fastest first and second sectors on his final run, but started to struggled towards the end of the lap and lost the rear of the car in the last corner. As a result Bottas had to settle for third on the grid, with Jenson Button taking his best dry qualifying of the year in fourth.
