All the signs from Free Practice pointed towards a spectacular qualifying session and that's just what we got. Plenty of action, plenty of falling laptimes, and a great lineup on the grid.

A session that played out as expected, considering what we already know. Vettel continued to have problems, whilst Rosberg continued to shine.


The most intense qualifying session we've seen in a long time, with Button on pole, but the action didn't stop once the chequered flag was waved. More protests, teams penalised, it's all going on.

Team By Team

Brawn GP are clearly super happy with their performance, and Vettel is glad it finally came together when it mattered. Other teams are less convinced, BMW have work to do, Ferrari are looking to the race, whilst Hamilton knows he's got it all to do once the lights go out on Sunday.
