REVEALED: Post-qualifying car weights in Spa

The post-qualifying fuel weights ahead of the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend suggest that Jarno Trulli could be in the best position to win Sunday's twelfth round in the 2009 FIA F1 World Championship.

Trulli will start from second on the grid in his Toyota and the Italian was one of the four heaviest runners during the top-ten shoot-out, carrying 8.5kg more fuel than pole sitter, Giancarlo Fisichella.

The Red Bulls of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber, as well as Nico Rosberg, also opted for a lot of fuel, but they will start down in eighth, ninth and tenth. Rosberg was the heaviest man in Q3 (670kg).

Force India's Fisichella was not unsurprisingly one of the lightest runners (648kg), with only Rubens Barrichello, who qualified in fourth in his Brawn GP machine, running with less (644.5kg).

Meanwhile BMW Sauber's Nick Heidfeld and Kimi Raikkonen - like Trulli - could also be well placed and they ran with just 1.5kg less than the Italian. Heidfeld will start third with the KERS equipped Ferrari of Raikkonen in sixth.

The complete list of the post-qualifying car weights is as follows (their actual starting position is in brackets at the end):

Kazuki Nakajima Williams-Toyota 706.1kg (18th)*
Romain Grosjean Renault 704.7kg (19th)*
