Qualification German Grand Prix of 2009

Comments on the Qualification

A totally awesome qualification with the rain and all! I like it very much when in a qualification the rain comes to fast so the drivers must change to intermediate tyres. It is even better when in the same period the rain ceases and the drivers must change to slicks. This is action for the viewer. It’s good for McLaren Mercedes to be in the top 10 with both drivers. And I am very impressed by Force India’s Adrian Sutil. He made in into the top ten qualifying and starts the race at seven.

Tomorrow I will enjoy the race from the grand stands around the Dunlop Kirche. I will get back to you about that experience.
