Australian Grand Prix 2008 : Lewis Hamilton on Top !

leave a comment

Kimi Raikkonen - Ferrari 2008 I had an exam today, so was really divided on whether to watch the Qualifying or not, but better sense prevailed and i watched it anyway. Ferrari bombed big-time with Kimi facing problems early on in his qualifying and having to settle for a dismal 16 – the topmost position in the Q1 qualifying session. Kimi’s car got stuck in the 1st session and hence could not compete further due to qualifying rules.

It was a different story for Lewis Hamilton though, his car was faster than Felipe’s Ferrari by a good margin. Robert Kubica qualified second for the BMW team while Lewis’s teammate will start right behind Lewis on the grid in the race as he qualified in third place.

Toyota did well to get 6th and 9th place for Trulli and Glock respectively. It was a good session for them.

Force India was as expected towards the bottom, Fisichella managed to beat a Torro Rosso alongwith 2 Super Aguris, and got 17th place.
