McLaren front row in Valencia

McLaren has gone a step toward proving Hungary wasn't a fluke as Lewis Hamilton and Heikki Kovalainen locked up the front row for the European Grand Prix in Valencia.

Brawn, meanwhile, look to be back on form with Rubens Barrichello qualifying third and Jenson Button fifth. Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel took fourth.

The newcomers once again had vastly different results. Renault's Romain Grosjean starts a respectable 14th, while his teammate starts eighth, but Ferrari's Luca Badoer is dead last on a day Kimi Raikkonen managed a sixth.

Force India's Adrian Sutil, impressive this weekend and fastest in an abbreviated final practice session, starts 12th.
