Each car's minimum weight including the driver is 605kg so anything over that is fuel.
Therefore we can see that Brawn GP are heavier than the cars behind them. Their qualifying pace is real.
They didn't achieve a front-row lockout by going light on the fuel.
Kubica is the lightest so therefore his lap wasn't as impressive as might havwe thought.
The Mclaren drivers are doing different strategies. 
Hamilton is going light and aggressive, and Kovalainen is brimmed up with fuel.
