    What a margin between Vettel and others ! Rosberg could not have even come close . I think he gave it his all .

    This was weird. During qualifying Rosberg and Hamilton were consistently quicker in the first and middle sector. Vettel quick in the final sector by a couple of tenths.
    What happened?

    Wow Alonso. First good qualifying performance since god knows when.

    so vettel obliterated any hopes of anyone challenging him, in the wet this time. hes on another planet, waiting to here the “skeptics” excuses now.

    Vettel was walking on water. Amazing performance!

    What a quali from Alonso! Second line, on the racing line.
    That could hardly have been better.

  7. Great performance from Vettel, but I had really hoped for a surprise. If Alonso has one of his great starts tomorrow, we could be in for an interesting couple of laps, and depending on how Hulkenberg is doing.

    Don’t think it’ll be super special for Massa or Webber, though.

      The chance of Alonso overtaking Vettel at the start is not very high even if Vettel doesn’t get well off the line, if Alonso has a good start he will be held by Roseberg who is always very defensive, plus the run to turn 1 is very short, and if it’s wet tomorrow i think that the race direction will start the race behind the safety car

    We were once again robbed from a much more exciting Q3. By the time the cars were allowed to resume qualifying the track was dry enough again for inters and that was that. Why does Pirelli even bother with shipping full wets?

    When it became clear that Massa had blown his final qualifying lap, I could have sworn that the earth shook slightly as hundreds of millions of people groaned at yet another predictable disappointment.

  10. Paul di Resta’s last qualifying session in F1. Beat his teammate by 8 tenths, despite missing FP1. Another great effort. Sad to see him go. :(

    Hi all,

    Casual American F1 fan here. I was wondering if anyone has brought up running the top ten cars one car at a time, with one flying lap. It’s kinda hard to follow qualy because it seems like everything happens in the last 30 seconds. And you can’t really compare one car’s lap to another because they’re all putting in their fast lap right at the end, and I don’t think it really televises well. So maybe they could just have Q1 in the future to split the top ten cars from the rest, and run those one at a time in Q2? Also, what’s the deal with the teams having to use both kinds of tire? Seems kind of arbitrary. I think it’d be better if they let the teams run the tire compound that suits the car best, so maybe that would make for more interesting races. It seems like drivers complain all the time about the stint where they have to use the tire they don’t like.
