Lewis Hamilton - On pole but with the lightest fuel load

The post qualifying weights for the 2009 European GP have been made public. Lewis Hamilton is the lightest one on the grid, probably pitting a lap earlier than Heikki Kovalainen. Sebastian Vettel will be making his stop at about the same time as the McLaren drivers. Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button have fuel for about 3 laps more than the three lightest cars. Raikkonen will start with the same fuel load as Button, on the dirtier side of the track but with the magic KERS button … Rosberg, Webber and Alonso will need to pit a lap or two later than the Brawn cars and Kimi’s Ferrari. The honour to be the heaviest car on the grid goes to Jarno Trulli with mighty 707.3 kg, five kg more than another super heavy car – Kazuki Nakajima’s Williams (702 kg) …
