Alonso stole the pole position from Hamilton in his final run. It looked though that Alonso’s final pit stop delayed Hamilton and prevented him from making one more qualifying run. Ron Dennis did not seem too happy after the session and that says something when he has both cars on the front row… P3 went to Nick Heidfeld and P4 to Kimi Raikkonen. This is probably the first time this season there is no Ferrari in top 3 on the grid. Nico Rosberg will start from respectable P5. The story of the session must be Felipe Massa not making it to Q3.
Not really sure what happened there. He stopped at the end of the pitlane just before his final Q2 to run. His crew pushed him back to restart him. He then went for his qualifying run but failed to break into top 10. He will have to start from P14.
Fisichella is on P9 at the moment but he is under investigation for blocking Sakon Yamamoto.
Qualifying was a disaster for Honda, they did not make it to Q2. The radio communication even suggest that Honda team takes some set up and tyre ideas from Super Aguri They should, as Davidson made it to Q2 and will start from P15.
