7th of the season and 13th career F1 pole position for Lewis Hamilton

7th of the season and 13th career F1 pole position for Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton will start the Chinese GP from pole position for the second year in a row. But it is a hostile territory around him, Kimi Raikkonen next to him, Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso right behind. Robert Kubica, the 3rd driver still in the title hunt, struggled with his car and missed out on Q3. He will start from P11 after Mark Webber (qualified 6th) will be demoted 10 places following his engine blow up in Saturday morning practice. Toro Rosso has again both cars in top 10.

Update: Nick Heidfeld was handed 3 place grid penalty for his role in the incident involving also David Coulthard.

    Hamilton is on this weekend with some fire and Raikkonen and Massa ready for a fight. This could have the makings of a great grand prix.

    Heidfeld penalized and Kubica lost in the shuffle, ahh, we’ll see what they can do, but for now I’m looking for Massa! :)
