Formula 1 Spanish GP Qualifying Review
What a surprising result! I thought that Mclaren’s Hamilton will total dominate the race tomorrow. But he has, lost his pole position for Sunday’s Spanish race after the stewards found his car did not have sufficient fuel onboard to comply with the rules on its return to parc ferme.
As a result of the decision, Williams’ Pastor Maldonado inherits pole for the Barcelona round, whilst Hamilton – excluded from the qualifying results – will start from the back of the grid (see the full news here, Hamilton excluded from qualifying; Maldonado on pole). I think that Mclaren’s gamble is not pay off, as after his last qualifying lap the car simply didn’t have enough fuel to return to the parc ferme because put a very minimul fuel to “safe” the pole. Sorry for Mclaren and Hamilton fans 😀
So this is the great chance to Pastor Maldonado as he will start from Pole with 1m 22.105s, also for the home driver Fernando Alonso with the time of 1m 22.302s. just behind them is the two Lotus with 1m 22.424s and 1m 22.487s, lead by Grosjean who also is in a great chance if he can repeat his start as in Bahrain.
Sergio Perez was sixth for Sauber with 1m 22.533s, while Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg was the only other top-10 runner to post a time, with 1m 23.005s. Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel will start eighth after voluntarily aborting two runs, while Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher similarly didn’t record a Q3 time and Kamui Kobayashi, ninth fastest in Q2, rolled to a halt on his slowdown lap. He’ll start tenth alongside Schumacher.
So who is your driver for tomorrow Grand Prix? And will it be a fifth different winner? Lets See! 🙂
