McLaren-Mercedes : Jenson Button 0,051s behind Lewis Hamilton
STR-Ferrari : Sebastien Buemi 0,102s behind Jaime Alguersuari
HRT-Cosworth : Karun Chandhok 0,109s behind Bruno Senna
Lotus-Cosworth : Heikki Kovalainen 0,121s behind Jarno Trulli

Not a Schumi fan, but I must admit that I wasn't expecting Rosberg to out-qualify him... wait & see, wait & see...

Button beats hamilton again then, dont get me wrong i am plesantly surprised and overall id say Hamilton is quicker and more entertaining. Its just nice all the Button bashers from the off season have been proven wrong. I think Button is much better than people give him credit for. Id say hes the Damon Hill to Hamiltons Mansell. Still should be a great pairing for Mclaren.

my stats are based on the drivers' best time over Q1, Q2 & Q3

Hamilton's best time was in Q2 : 1:34.928
Button's best, in Q3 : 1:34.979

This being daid, this is the first GP this season where everyone in inside the (not official) 107%, both in Q1 & overall best time.

best time : Lewis Hamilton - 95,641s x 107% = 102,336s
"worst" : Karun Chandhok - 100,578s

overall best times:
best time over all Qs: Vettel - 94,558s x 107% = 101,177s
"worst" time overall: Chandhok - 100,578s

This also is so far, the GP where the most "best time" were accomplished in Q3, rather than Q2. (except for Hamilton & Sutil)
I wonder what kind of strategy produced this???

Everyone seems to forget that FA is right there, second row. The front row better hope he is not holding back. And they had better get distance quick or he will dog them. Why do you all ignore one of the best drivers ever? He may be getting ready to eat lunch at 2 am central.
