Monaco Grand Prix : Qualifying from Monte Carlo

leave a comment

As we start the session and I switch on the television Sergio Perez bangs into the wall and loses his rear suspension and a rear tyre.

The 1st session is a bit interesting, the top 3 drivers are Hulkenberg, Koayashi and Grosjean followed by world champion Sebastien Vettel. The only issue being that the top3 have already used their super soft compound tyres while the biggies managed to qualify using just soft compound tyres so that they can get better times in their subsequent runs. Perez, Karthikyean, Pique, Delarosa, Heikki Kovalainen and Timo Glock are among those relegated.

In Q2, Nico Rosberg seems to be doing pretty well, Rosberg was also the fastest guy in the morning practice session. He leads from Webber, Hamilton, Alonso and Schumacher, all of them in .200th of a second. Infact, top 11 drivers in Q2 are within 1 seond of each other. Pastor Maldonado and Michael Schumacher have to contend with a 10 place and 5 place penalty respectively. And Felipe Massa just goes P1, apparently Ferrari have asked him to perform or perish. As the Q2 session ends Jenson Button is unable to enter the top 10 and the previous Monaco Grand Prix winner will have to start from P13.

Q3, was whoa ! Straight to the result, Michael Schumacher gets pole position. He is ecstatic and so are we, he is cheering and flashing the victory sign. Its fate’s cruel turn that he has a 5 place penalty to contend with.

More later !

formula one bahrain grand prix starting line up

The German Red Bull F1 driver Sebastien Vettel edged Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso to grab the first pole of the 2010 season. Seven time formula one world champion Michael Schumacher who is returning to the track after a sabbatical was seventh in the qualifying with his team-mate Nice Rosberg doing better at 5th place. Vettel’s team-mate was 6th.

Ferrari were the team with most consistent performance in practice and qualifying alike, it seems that this season they might very well be the team to beat, but its still to early to tell.

Newcomer teams like Lotus F1 and HRT F1 (Campos Meta) struggled to make their mark. Some of their times were beyond 2 minutes with Indian rookie Karun Chandhok bringing up the rear for the grid in his HRT F1 car.

Sorry for no qualifying review, but tomorrow, I have an interview with the one of the best schools in India and I wish to get in :)

Nico Hulkenberg and Rubens Barrichello for Williams F1 in 2010

leave a comment

Lets take a look at the Williams F1 team, they have changed both their drivers this season. They have gone in for the experienced + rookie combo (we know that doesnt always work out BTW). They have managed to rope in Rubens Barrichello from last season’s champions the Brawn GP team plus the new German in town Nico Hulkenberg who recently topped the GP2 driver’s championship.

Apart from GP2 , he has some impressive performances in Formula 3 and A1GP. Rubens Barrichello will surely have his plate full.

They would be using the Cosworth engine and do retain AT&T as their main sponsors.
