    Looking at that, I have a feeling Lotus might try a 2-stop like in Australia, where the other top teams may be restricted to a 3-stop…

    Great lap by Rosberg, and also Vettel putting in a good Q3 lap. Hamiltons’ lap was a bit scrappy, and Webber.. well he’s supposted to be a great qualifier at Catalunya, but he’s nowhere, half a second of his team-mate. I expected Alonso a bit higher up, the Ferrari has been quick all weekend.
    For tomorrow i expect a fierce battle between Vettel, Raikkonen and Alonso (as usual, 2013). Raikkonen probably wins.

    Does anyone know if someone ran his best Q3 time on hards and/or used tyres?

    What? Van der Garde was actually the best backmarker?

      He’s no Senna, but he isn’t as terrible as some of the motorsport media make him out to be. He just took too long to get into F1.

        Yeah I didn’t really mean to claim he’s terrible, I was just surprised he suddenly beat Pic who was over a second better in Bahrain 3 weeks ago. Now let’s wait and see what he can do tomorrow.

    Ted Kravitz on Twitter.

    Both Massa and Gutierrez get 3 place grid penalties for impeding in qualy.

    Lewis had more pace under him as the Q3 lap was qite scrappy and was quite lucky not to end up on the 2nd row. I was wondering why the team left his run till the dying minutes of Q3, thereby putting him under unnecessary pressure – He makes mistakes when he is under pressure. He should have done like Rosberg – come out early, then go again.

    • Hamilton only had 1 set of new tyres for Q3, Rosberg had 2. He used his first set to get his ‘eye’ in.

      Hamilton didnt make a mistake under pressure, if you look at the sector times, Rosberg was less than a tenth up in each one.

    I like how close the Mid-field is, Toro Rosso seem to have improved to the level of Force India/Mclaren, and Sauber seem to have done the same.

  8. Well done ROSBERG! Perfect lap.
