A slow start to the weekend meant we were hoping for action today. There was plenty to keep our eye on but the end result of qualifying was not exactly unexpected.
Just an hour of practice for the drivers to get to grips with the track before qualifying, and poor Alguersuari didn't get a chance to set a laptime.
It was clearly going to be a McLaren day as the team continued to dominate proceedings - but Kovalainen didn't have that much luck, and needs a gearbox change.
It looks like another track where qualifying is super duper important, and that means McLaren and Red Bull have a great start. Kovalainen, Force India and Renault will most likely struggle at the back of the grid.
