All Toyota front row

All Toyota front row

Jarno Trulli will start the 2009 Bahrain GP from pole position, his team mate Timo Glock will line up next to him on the front row. Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button form the row 2.

1. Jarno Trulli – 1:33.431
2. Timo Glock – 1:33.712
3. Sebastian Vettel – 1:34.015
4. Jenson Button – 1:34.044
5. Lewis Hamilton – 1:34.196
6. Rubens Barrichello – 1:34.239
7. Fernando Alonso – 1:34.578
8. Felipe Massa – 1:34.818
9. Nico Rosberg – 1:35.134
10. Kimi Raikkonen – 1:35.380

It will be interesting to see the car weights when FIA publishes them later today. Ferraris and Rosberg however do seem to carry quite a lot of fuel on board while Trulli may be a bit light.

Vettel dominated also the Q2 ahead of the Toyotas of Glock and Trulli. Both Brawns, Ferraris, Alonso, Hamilton and Rosberg also made it to Q3. Here are the drivers eliminated after Q2:

11. H. Kovalainen – 1:33.242
12. K. Nakajima – 1:33.348
13. R. Kubica – 1:33.487
14. N. Heidfeld – 1:33.562
15. N. Piquet – 1:33.941

Nelson Piquet probably hasn’t done himself any favours by running wide on his last flying lap in Q2 …

Sebastian Vettel was the fastest driver in Q1, ahead of Trulli and Hamilton. It was very different story for Vettel’s team mate Mark Webber who only managed 19th. it looked like Webber was blocked by Adrian Sutil. Stewards may have some work to do … Here are the drivers eliminated after Q1:

16. A. Sutil – 1:33.722
17. S. Buemi – 1:33.753
18. G. Fisichella – 1:33.910
19. M. Webber – 1:34.038
20. S. Bourdais – 1:34.159

    A bit OT, Wolf, but have you seen the Star Sports discussion over at Keith’s? No one defending Steve Slater there… or Sanjeev Palar, for that matter. ;)

    • F1WolfNo Gravatar says:

      yes, saw that :-)

      and unfortunately I also listened to Slater today again during quali :-)

        Figure out, I’m a bit lost :P What’s happening in ESPN asian Star Sports? Here I’m quite surprised today, no big mistakes, the TV hosts didn’t rename Kazuki Nakajima as Shinjii Nakano, and even commented the action with some interest for the spectators (as for me today it was a good day for them).

          I tried hard not to listen, but still managed his talk about this famous track designer who designed so many of the new tracks and then realizing he does not what is his name :-) yes, he was talking about Tilke :-)

          • KotenokNo Gravatar says:

            He didn’t know his name??? HAHAHAHA But where did this guy live the last 10 years? In Alaska?

            Well, in Spanish TV they did also talk about this mister, last 3 races have been run in circuits designed by him, they were discussing the open war of the British GP soap opera, Donington VS Silverstone!!! One seems to have lost all credit towards FOM and the other one is just lost in the reconstruction schedule…
            They didn’t end this kind of talk without mention Yas Island’s circuit in Abu Dhabi. The deadlines are not far away from now, and it’s clearly not on time… However, I believe that in Saudi Arabia doesn’t want to hear that kind of talks, and they will inject money and people to the project for ending it at the right time.

          • JRNo Gravatar says:

            Abu Dhabai is not in Saudi. It’s in UAE.

    Well, an update to this starting grid would be that Sutil is penalized as result of severe blocking Webber in track.

    I saw it already :) I’m quite surprised what a kind of failure had Glock in FP3, but seems nothing stoped him either. was that hydraulics or gearbox? Can’t find it yet in the reports. However, I think Webber could have thought it twice and slow down in that situation for making some gap between him and Sutil… Anyway, I don’t remember how much time was left so that he could pass through the starting line and everybody can imagine that he shoukd have been slowed again as the Force India isn’t that fast enough, but maybe could have not happened and Webber would seat in a comfortable place in the grid.
