    Red Bulls pretty slow in a straight line – hopefully they end up stuck behind slow cars moaning on the radio.

    I know Massa was very good at qualifying before 2009 and he seems on the form again. Still, Alonso delievered when it matters. The record is depended! :)

    What happened to Vettel? missed qualifying as I was not too keen on getting up early. I would have expected atleast a top 4 finish from 1 RBR.
    So now I reading that Webber cannot have a mechanical problem without it being the team screwing him up. I thought both drivers have different engineers working separately on each car, and I thought that the engineers of both drivers are also in some sort of mini competition, so why would they screw their own car?
    It also sounded like RBR Are keen on the constructors title, why would they subotage their own chances. RBR are not in this to pleas Vettel, they are her to win and whichever driver wins then it’s a + for the team.

    Last time when a Red Bull was sent to the back of the grid for the same reason AND Hamilton was on pole.. Kimi won the race!

    Well done Hamilton. A pole for Mercedes in his third outing is a remarkable achievement. Grid is nicely poised for fun and games tomorrow.
