13 min: Jarno Trulli fastest at 1.30.160 

14 min: David Coulthard out on track and Giancarlo Fisichella runs off onto the grass - no apparent damage but this would have slowed him down

15 min: Jos Verstappen appears fast.

16 min: Mika Hakkinen's turn to go skating on the grass

18 min: Hakkinen back in the pits - he still seemed fast, probably just a radiator cleanout and check for damage
