In 2010, qualifying was one of the most important part of the year and it looks as though 2011 is going to be no different. With brand new tyres to try and understand, timing is going to be crucial when the drivers head out on track to make their low-fuel top-flight run.

However, with the changeable conditions we have seen so far, and the grey clouds circulating Albert Park, getting a banker lap on the board is going to be crucial in case the heavens open and the rains come.
