    Pastor Maldonado watching that from Caracas is saying

    “Damn there goes my chances for next year”

    1. Haha. So true. His heart must have dropped.

    2. Brilliant comment! :)
      I was thinking exactly the same thing! lol :)

  4. When I saw that Williams getting the pole, I falled from the chair. And that’s it.

    Highlight of the year.

    We don’t even need a pool for this category…

    1. 100% agreed!…………….

        Agreed, I am so happy for Williams and not just a close pole but by over 1 second!

  7. I feel so happy for Williams! The current line-up should be retained. There’s a serious progress here, you don’t need to change your drivers at this point. Rubens & Nico for the next season!

    1. Yeah, they need them both. Rubens is a great tester/developer/guinea pig for Nico. His call to switch to slicks was what got Nico pole, and Nico wasn’t comfortable with the switch at first according to Head.

    Wow that was just amazing 1.1 seconds faster than a Red Bull & he kept his cool banging in quick sector times and ultimately quick lap times, truly deserved that pole position.

  9. It’s just unbeliveable!
    The guy sure must have used KERS!!!!

    1. I’m thinking in jet engine.

  10. fantastic, just fantastic.. for a minute i believe hamilton will be in the front row but the red bulls…

  11. It should never be forgotten too that he put in *2* pole-qualifying laps so this wasn’t some fluke – he is running a fresh engine I believe but he deserves serious attention from the big teams after that.

    Hulk for Ferrari! :)

    1. Yeah, that’s true, he already had provisional pole a lap earlier. I think that’s been ignored a bit…

  12. I think i’ve fallen for this guy.First time this year a performance that gave me chills. Once fernando retires i’ll be rooting for you Hulk. Bring it on Vettel..

    1. I know that he’s young and blond, but that’s a bit far isn’t it :-P

  13. both Williams delivered, but Hulk did a real magic. Maybe they did setup for wet, while all others for dry race?

  14. I really think, that the only logical explanation of this is that Williams have installed the Kers on the car. Altough no one has it this year, it’s not forbidden to use it, so Hulkenberg wouldn’t have a penalty. And one thing I heard at the beginning of the season is that Williams keeps the developping the system this year. Putting the system this race could have been the perfect way to test it…

    1. It’s not illegal under FIA regulations, but all the teams have an agreement under FOTA not to use it this year, so if they did run it they’d be going against that agreement and likely have some explaining to do to the fellow teams.

    2. Of course Williams keep developing their KERS. It’s planned to come back next year, and they make a business of it. It would be stupid to stop.

  15. What a pole lap.. Crushing the Red Bull’s by over a second! How is that possible? He totally destroyed everyone, in a car that is clearly not in the same league as the others. I don’t get what happened there. How can he be so much faster with the same tires as the others? Eddie said something about timing, but his first pole lap would easily have been enough to give him pole, and it was after that, that Vettel and Webber crossed the line. So they must have had better conditions then Hulkenberg. And then he just sealed it in the end. I just hope that he can hang on tomorrow and maybe salvage a podium, because i don’t think he will stand a chance if it is a all dry race.

  16. If the race develops in this order (Vettel,Webber, both ahead of Alonso) Redbull will face a difficult decision.
    I mean letting webber go ahead or probably losing driver’s championship to Alonso

  17. A session where driving made a diff and Massa and Button where nowhere

    their performances, just wow..

    Button had a bad session but Massa is just nowhere and in a really bad slump. He really needs a good result tomorrow and in Abu Dhabi – the last thing he wants is to head into the offseason having finished the season with these types of results

  18. Alonso 241
    Webber 235
    Hamilton 222

    If they finish as they start. Shaping up nicely for Abu Dhabi.

  19. Hmm I doubt so, we should see tomorrows race before making prediction because it is highly likely hulk was on a full wet set up? Which all the other championship contenders did not take, because it’s too much of a risk tomorrow,

  20. First Cosworth-powered Williams pole position since Keke Rosberg at the 1982 British Grand Prix.
