Spain 2012 - Qualifying results // Lewis Hamilton takes a spectacular pole position, and there's a surprise second place

Published by Christine

An intriguing qualifying began with Bruno Senna crashing out in the first session, and both Jenson Button and Mark Webber failing to make it into the top ten. With a mixed order for the final session, we were expecting fireworks, but it took until the last few minutes before things really got going. For a moment, it looked as though we were going to get another brand new polesitter, but Lewis Hamilton put in one of his storming laps to secure P1 for the Spanish Grand Prix.
