Honda's Jenson Button made it through to the top-ten shootout for the Italian Grand Prix, after another typically close session with little to choose between the midfield teams.

Button posted his best time right at the end, and along with the usual top six comprised of the McLarens, Ferraris and BMW Saubers, will join Williams' Nico Rosberg, Toyota's Jarno Trulli and Renault's Heikki Kovalainen in Q3.

Mark Webber was unlucky to miss out, less than 3 hundredths of a second off Kovalainen, while Rubens Barrichello, Alex Wurz, Anthony Davidson, Giancarlo Fisichella and Sebastian Vettel were the other casualties, in 12th to 16th respectively.

Fisichella had his final best effort wreaked after Barrichello went off the track, something the Italian reckoned cost him two to three tenths - and may well have put him into Q3.

Fernando Alonso set the pace in Q2, on a 1m 21.356s, followed by his McLaren team-mate, Lewis Hamilton, Ferrari duo, Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen and the two BMWs led by Robert Kubica.
