Qualification Belgian Grand Prix of 2009

Comments on the Qualification

What a surprise !!! Force India F1 Team with Giancarlo Fisichella on pole position. Is the car low on fuel or not? Only time will tell! BMW Sauber F1 Team is fighting back with Nick Heidfeld on third and Robert Kubica on fifth. Jenson Button on fourteenth (Brawn GP F1 Team), Lewis Hamilton (McLaren Mercedes) on twelfth, Fernando Alonso (Renault F1 Team) on thirteenth and Heikki Kovalainen (McLaren Mercedes) on fifteenth are very disappointing! I can’t wait to see what the race will bring.
