Sorry for the silence on practice and qualifying. I have been very busy recently.
Webber takes pole! They only managed to get one dry run in Q3, but it was enough for the Aussie to go quicker. And Heikki Kovalainen made it to Q2 after the rain prevented the other teams from getting in a better lap. Daniel Ricciardo qualified – as expected – in 24th place, while Timo Glock outqualified Jarno Trulli struggling this weekend in his Lotus.
McLaren are having real trouble. Hamilton is only 10th on the grid tomorrow while Di Resta made it into 6th next to Button in 5th. The Ferraris share row 2.
A wet qualifying messed things up, with all the frontrunners in the middle of the field. Dangerous for accidents. But unlucky Bianchi got in a hot lap before the rain came down and takes pole. Grosjean starts 13th after qualifying 3rd because of his penalty after causing an accident in Valencia.
This morning pole was taken by Adrian Quaife-Hobbs, with James Calado alongside him after a penalty was revoked. Lewis Williamson and Mitch Evans take row 2 for Arden, and hopefully will do well to seal a great day for their boss Mark Webber. Nigel Melker starts 16th after his penalty.
The races are up next. Let’s see what happens…
