Might have been a long wait but what a great Q3. Shame Romain wasn't there. Fernando and Mark were a class ahead. Well done to Schuey too, and a bit better from Massa as well. Hamilton looked as if he was auditioning for the D1 Drifting Championships.

Well done Ferrari and Alonso, first pole in too long.

Nice to see Schumacher and Massa up there.

Webber beats Vettel again, not bad for a number 2 driver.

Where was "Speed King" and who will get the blame this time? :p

Clear to see the Ferrari bias in action again.

Quali 2 shouldn't have been red flagged it should have finished under the safety car then the red flag should have been shown.
Oh i forgot if this happened Alonso would have been out in quali 2 and then we wouldn't have seen the ferrari bias in action again when he went faster even when there were yellow flags out for a car off the track.

I for one don't feel like I can tell what it will turn out be like tomorrow let alone whose or what battles there will be.
If it rains fresh/new rain tyres will be a big problem for the front runners.

Gz to Alonso a very good job and also to Mark and Schumi both did superb, Vettel probably went on a wrong setup as the car looks like it's got less downforce probably closer to a dry/wet setup but still solid.

As goes for Sham... what an idiot trying to find time thsts not there in that last sector, but the Mclaren is still the fastest car I'm full wets right now so unfortunately for the real F1 fans Sham will probably take victory as long as he don't crash with Maldonado, Massa, Webber, Schumi etc. Good luck Sham brigade.

The three wise heads from Valencia show up again. I know there is always a lot of debate about the young guns being the top guns, but when everything is not laid out perfectly there is nothing like experience.

I know in Valencia there was luck involved, but making smart choices and keeping in the game gave us the podium - the same it seems has given us the Pole Podium (tweaked) with Webber into 2nd. Quality driving "three wise monkeys" - roll on the race!
