2008 Brazilian F1 GP – Qualifying – Massa on pole, Hamilton P4

Massa on pole in his home race

Massa on pole in his home race

It is advantage Massa … Felipe Massa will start the final race of the 2008 Formula 1 season from the pole position, his 6th P1 of the year. Jarno Trulli will be his neighbour on the front row. Behind them Kimi Raikkonen P3 and Lewis Hamilton P4.

It does look good for Felipe Massa – pole position, potential Trulli train and then chance of Kimi Raikkonen’s help in managing the gap between himself and Hamilton. But the race is 73 laps long and P4 is still a title winning position for Lewis Hamilton… Interesting set up for the title deciding race we have …


The third row will be occupied by Heikki Kovalainen and Fernando Alonso. For the 3rd time in a row and 6th time in the last 7 races both Toro Rosso cars made it to Q3 – Sebastian Vettel will start his final race for Toro Rosso from P7, Sebastien Bourdais will line up at P9. Nick Heidfeld (P8) and Timo Glock (P10) complete the top 10.

Not a good day for Robert Kubica, for the second weekend in a row he failed to make the Q3. Red Bull also will not be too happy with both cars missing out on top 10. It was a decent day for the other 2 Brazilians – P11 for Nelson Piquet, P15 for Rubens Barrichello.

Jenson Button, both Williams and both Force India cars dropped out after Q1.
