Qualifying results - Italy 2013 // Hülkenberg springs a surprise, whilst Hamilton slumps to twelfth

Published by Christine

Although the front row may have been predictable from the start of the weekend, or perhaps even the year, there were still surprises to be had in qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix. The two Lotus drivers struggled to find pace with neither getting through to the final session. Equally, Lewis Hamilton had a terrible session, going so far as to admit he "drove like an idiot." Meanwhile, the start of the show was Nico Hülkenberg, scooping best of the rest position behind the Red Bulls.
