so now we have some FACTS to comment on.

those know it alls didn't know as much as they thought! not going to mention names :)

Vettel is quickest as most suspected, but McLaren and Hamilton showed their class and put it on P2. Webber is probably kicking his sheep at the back of the pits somewhere seeing his team mate so far ahead of him with the same equipment. and Button wasn't too far behind.

what happened to Ferrari and Teflonso? ... not too good eh? Massa is finished full stop and Schumi should join him after failing in Q2.

so what are all the McLaren/Hamilton haters going to say now? the 'Dog' is out the kennel and the 'talent-less' Hamilton is on the front row even with his Kers failure!

finally well done to Petrov, really pleased for him. Heidfield... no comment!

bring on the race!!!

Wait, thats not all i have to say. If Petrov finished six, what could Renault have done with Kubica? This shouldve been Renault's year on this evidence, but we'll wait for the race to really see about Nick

Wow Vettel, just wow. We'll have to see if he can keep that pace up in the race though, he was coming back to the pits with chunks missing from his tyres in practice.

Petrov seems to have improved massively this year. Third in Q1, pushed Schumacher out in Q2, then ended up sixth in Q3 behind the "big five" drivers. Not bad at all for someone we thought we'd never see in F1 again!!

HRT, well 7.5 seconds off the pace is still an improvement considering it was the first time they'd attempted a hot lap (or lukewarm lap). They shouldn't be allowed to start though, we had enough trouble last year with slow cars. They'll be within 107% after a couple of races, I'm sure.
