@herowassenna Eh... Prost wasn't a great qualifier though - his racecraft was very superior, he even admitted this himself. Senna always had the raw pace to become a one lap hero! :) Interesting quali .... never mind who's on pole - De La Rosa is going to start 20th tomorrow! Oh yeah! cmon the HRT! :)
