    Incredible recovery from Jenson over the weekend. Yesterday, who would have thought him to be 5th ahead of Hamilton? Definitely a name to watch over the race.
    Mercedes phailed again, and Alonso was so close :(

  2. ILoveVettel said on 24th July 2010, 14:16

    Sutil row 10!!!!

  3. adam mason said on 24th July 2010, 14:16

    very interesting to see Ferrari have found some speed

  4. Victor said on 24th July 2010, 14:18

    I’d have loved a non-Red Bull driver to grab pole. Shame. Also Massa did beautifully, considering that he’s spun more than he’s stayed on the tarmac thus far.

    • Dan Thorn (@dan-thorn) said on 24th July 2010, 14:46

      With Danny Sullivan as race steward this weekend perhaps a Massa “spin and win” isn’t out of the question!

    • It seems Massa likes it that way. If I remember correctly, even in his 2008 championship campaign he often spun in practice.

      • Dan Thorn (@dan-thorn) said on 24th July 2010, 18:17

        Also a certain Mr M. Schumacher would usually have a spin at some point during a race weekend. Didn’t stop him much!

        • OEL said on 24th July 2010, 19:15

          It´s better to spin than to put it in the wall and loose FP2, like Hamilton

          • Yes, I can’t remember Massa actually hitting anything in practice in the last few years – while when Hamilton spins, it seems he hits the wall (e.g. Bahrain 2008, Monaco 2007)

      • BasCB (@bascb) said on 24th July 2010, 20:04

        I suppose it means he’s really on the edge with the car, getting the last drop of speed out of it.

        Nice to see him in P3 again.

  5. Calum said on 24th July 2010, 14:27

    Urgh, 3rd Row for Mclaren.
    Oh well, lets hope for rain… heavy rain, that’ll spice it up nicely!

    • Whitty 123 said on 24th July 2010, 17:58

      I think it’ll be worse for Mclaren tomorrow I just have a feeling Hamilton may lose a wing or two, I don’t know why I just have a wierd inkling……

    • BasCB (@bascb) said on 24th July 2010, 20:06

      The lost running from Lewis not doing more than 16 laps on friday wasn’t helpfull to get a good setup for him.
      But their race speed and race craft should bring McLaren close to the podium again. Actually it’s good to see Button get the best of Hamilton again after the last 7 races.

      • US_Peter said on 25th July 2010, 3:58

        Yeah, I was beginning to think Button wouldn’t outqualify Hamilton again this season.

  6. giorgio said on 24th July 2010, 14:42

    i couldn’t really watch the quali, but did any of the teams took the risk of a slight different set up, eg. rain?

  7. ADZ23 said on 24th July 2010, 14:51

    shame alonso just missed out,be good if ferrari could grad a 1~2 finish,get them back in the hunt,well done vettel

  8. SPIDERman said on 24th July 2010, 15:04

    A FERRARI ONE two finish is looking highly likely and for me that is good news for now because as long as they lock out the redbulls then at least mclaren will still keep the points lead until they find speed next race

    • DaveW said on 24th July 2010, 18:14

      Yes, The best thing that could happen tomorrow for McLaren, barring a first lap pile up taking out P1-P4, is that Ferrari beat RBR, specifically, for Massa to win. However, it will be close.

      • BasCB (@bascb) said on 24th July 2010, 20:14

        That would be amazing, having Massa lead home Alonso and maybe Vettel or even better, Barricello or Rosberg. That would mean only Ferrari will close in on RBR and a bit on McLaren.

        I would rather hope for Alonso to win it in front of Massa and maybe Webber (don’t want Vettel to get in front of Mark again) with Mclaren finishing 4th and 5th. That would bring Alonso right into the fight and Webber and Button would close in on Lewis.

  9. Steven said on 24th July 2010, 15:06

    Alonso did say he would win the WDC. Looks like he is on the right track.

  10. sato113 said on 24th July 2010, 15:23

    Schumi starting 11th could be a benefit, starting on the hard tyres whilst everyone infront will be on the super softs…

    • BasCB (@bascb) said on 24th July 2010, 20:08

      But the hards will suffer quite a bit from the first laps on high fuel load, so he will have to do a pretty long stint on the super softs then.

      • bosyber said on 25th July 2010, 7:16

        Again. Maybe this time, he will come in for a second stint on the hards later on, instead of struggling to keep the tires on near the end of the race and losing three places in the last few laps?

  11. Flippy PK said on 24th July 2010, 17:40

    Perfect chance for Massa for a Bahrain revenge. Give Alonso a taste of his own medicine, eh? Massa’s starting on the clean side, unlike Bahrain.

  12. Marco said on 24th July 2010, 18:30

    Good to see Jaime beating Buemi again after China… It was a surprise for me how well he did today, with 4 tenths advantage above team mate… Also De La Rosa’s time was very near… I hope 15th place on grid will bring him the same luck as in Spain…:)

  13. John H said on 24th July 2010, 19:08

    It’s amazing to think that Hamilton’s 1:14.603 in Q2 was the quickest time in 2008, and now we’re almost 1 second quicker.

  14. Icthyes said on 24th July 2010, 19:22

    For some reason, I can see Massa winning this one, and it would be great if he did.

  15. bosyber said on 24th July 2010, 20:00


    Glock dropped to back for gearbox change. Reliability woes again strike both Virgins, it seems.

    Heh, Webber with a reprimand for doing a too slow lap after that first corner error.

    • BasCB (@bascb) said on 24th July 2010, 20:11

      Both Virgins are at the back of the grid. Force India will be starting only a few meters in front though.

      I wouldn’t be supprised if Liuzzi and both the Virgins would start from the pits tomorrow.

  16. US_Peter said on 25th July 2010, 4:03

    Keith, F1.com has Glock at the back with TWO 5-place grid penalties. Not really sure how that works, maybe a gearbox change as well as an engine change? In any case it looks like DIG is now 23rd and GLO 24th.

    • bosyber said on 25th July 2010, 7:18

      The autosport article I quoted above mentions that one is for replacing the gearbox itself, the other for changing a gear ratio (7th I think).

      Since he was at the back already, they probably thought they might as well do the second change as well for a better race, if they found that they got that one wrong for the race conditions.

  17. Eric said on 25th July 2010, 5:43

    i think from row 6 to 8 the time should be.
    1′16.026 not 1′15.026 ??

    otherwise there times would put them ahead of some others drivers.

    thanks to your site and the wealth of info you provide in keeping us up to date is fantastic.
    Thanks Eric

    • bosyber said on 25th July 2010, 7:20

      The times from rows 5 and further back are from Q2 or Q1; places 5-10 were slower in Q3 than in Q2.

  18. Damon said on 25th July 2010, 10:05

    Hamilton must have had a scrappy final run as he was faster than button throughout qualifying. Massa is usually like lightning off the startline, now after saying that hel get the worst start possible lol

  19. dragon said on 25th July 2010, 10:09

    I think I speak for all of us when I say there’s nothing more that I want than a bit of Massa magic, a 2008-style inspired performance. Come on Felipe baby, stay cool!

  20. W154 said on 25th July 2010, 10:37

    Alonso is usually a very good starter so can see him and Vettel having a coming together first corner or at hairpin at end of the left handed “straight”.This would leave MW to fend off the McLaren challenge. 2 against 1, sorry Mark, another bag of points for JB and LH!
