Qualification Abu Dhabi Grand Prix of 2009

Comments on the Qualification

I really enjoyed this qualification. What an action and what a great circuit Yas Marina Circuit is!

Giancarlo Fisichello is very disappointing in his Ferrari, while Kimi Raikkonen did the best he could and got 11th. It’s a pitty for Force India with both cars on 17th and 18th. McLaren Mercedes shows they are still the best with Lewis Hamilton on pole, only a shame they didn’t do that in the first nine races. Red Bull Racing is going steady for 2nd in the championship with Sebastian Vettel on 2nd and Mark Webber on 3rd. BMW Sauber has both cars in the top ten. If this is the last race they contend, it’s a good result.

I look forward to the race this afternoon.

Comments on the Qualification

Who very exciting this qualification was!!!
How the rain can put great drivers and great teams down in the results!!!

It’s a shame for McLaren Mercedes that Lewis is 18th and Heikki is 17th. Maybe Sebastian was held up by traffic, but Mark saves the day for Red Bull Racing. And what to say about Jenson Button? Jenson makes the championship even more exciting by qualifiying 14th and with Rubens on pole the championship is still very open. For Adrian another good result in his Force India F1. I bet Giancarlo isn’t that happy with the switch he made from Force India F1 to Ferrari?

Comments on the Qualification

I haven’t seen the qualification, but for what I can see out of the results it must have been a very special tense qualification. I read there were three red flags … How difficult to set a time in such situations! But Sebastian Vettel did it, he put his RB5 on pole! To bad Mark Webber wasn’t able to qualify. Toyota was getting better and better and with Jarno on 2nd it’s clear they have a super car for now. To bad Timo Glock had the crash and must probably miss the race. Kimi tried and got eight as best result but what about Giancarlo? He is sixteenth! How shamefull!

Qualification Italian Grand Prix of 2009

Comments on the Qualification

I haven’t seen the qualification, but for what i can see in the results it’s staggering … McLaren Mercedes is back on top with Lewis on pole and Heikki on 4th. Giancarlo Fisichella must have been sour because he is 15th and Adrian Sutil with the Force India is 2nd. Brawn GP is half way the top ten with Rubens on 5th and Jenson on 6th. I sure hope they do better in Singapore.
