    We enjoyed a breathtaking Formula 1 Qualifying session in Malaysia. Just like the practices Red Bulls and McLarens were the leading teams in the exciting qualifying session.

    First laptime in Q3 came from Lewis Hamilton, which was 1.35.000s. Then Jenson Button, Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel followed him. Other drivers decided to do only one flying lap to preserve soft tyres for the race tomorrow, as they did'nt have hope for the pole position.

    Then at the 2nd flying laps, Hamilton improved his laptime, while Webber and Button could'nt pass him and became 3rd and 4th. And Vettel, who wasn't so fast in practices came and took the pole position at the last minute with a 0.104s gap.

    Fernando Alonso came as the best among the others with a 5th position. Nick Heidfeld seperated two Ferraris with his 6th position. While Vitaly Petrov came 8th.

    Nico Rosberg defeated his experienced team mate Michael Schumacher again and did the 9th best laptime. While Kamui Kobayashi was 10th.

    Hispania Racing Team enjoyed the qualifiying session even tough they were 23th and 24th. Because they could be in the %107 limit and they will be able to race tomorrow.

    Fantastic battle for pole though, with just a tenth in it. Schumi was struggling again, but some nice stuff from Renault and a better showing from Team Lotus. The race should be good, especially if there's some rain :tongue:
     
  5. I guess McLaren is closing the gap between them and Red Bull and since Vettel will never be as good as Hamilton, i'd say McLaren in the next race is going to have them for balls.
