Adrian Sutil, who had been fourth quickest before a five-place grid penalty, was the lightest driver at 650kg, followed by Jarno Trulli, Lewis Hamilton and pole-man Sebastian Vettel – with the quarter all set to run a short first stint in Sunday's race.
Jenson Button qualified with the fifth lightest car but is starting from twelfth after also securing a penalty and is 2 kilos lighter than team-mate Rubens Barrichello – with the pair set to run similar strategies.
