Massa takes pole position again in Turkey

May 10, 2008 18:48 IST

Ferrari's [Images] Felipe Massa [Images] took pole position at the Turkish Grand Prix for the third year in a row on Saturday.

Brazilian Massa, who has won at the Istanbul Park circuit for the past two years, will have McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen alongside him on the front row in Sunday's race.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton [Images] was third quickest with Ferrari's Formula One world champion Kimi Raikkonen [Images] joining the 23-year-old Briton on the second row.

Raikkonen leads Hamilton by nine points in the championship after four races.

The pole was Massa's 12th of his Formula One career.
