Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel won pole position for tomorrow’s Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. His sixth in last seven races.
Vettel seems to have a lot of space to maneuver. He crashed in Friday’s practice session but came back strongly to take the pole.
He was followed by Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso, who will start in the first row along-side Vettel and Felipe Massa occupied the third position.
Ferrari’s performance has been under-par but things seem to be getting better now especially with Alonso, who had some good races.
Fourth in the grid is Vettel’s team mate Mark Webber, whose speed-boosting KERS system failed to work.
It was a disappointing afternoon for McLaren’s Hamilton and Button as they were on fifth and seventh position.
Former World Champion Michael Schumacher’s comeback has not look good enough and competitive as he came eight.
Force India’s Paul di Resta produced a phenomenal effort but failed to break in top 10 as he took up the eleventh position and his team mate Adrian Sutil settled at fourteenth place.
India’s lone driver Narain Karthikeyan continues to struggle as he met with casualty in Q1 but made it to the Sunday’s race starting from second last position.
The track at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is an old-fashioned with long straights and challenging chicanes, which are bumping over the kerbs.One has to make sure that they are not going to spin into a wall.
The weather was cool and windy and is expected to rain on raceday.If it rains; the drivers are expected to turn to the supersoft Pirelli tyres.
Vettel is favorite to win his First Canadian Grand Prix 70 laps race and take his season to six wins in seven races.
