Brazil 2008: Qualifying Result

Felipe Massa has taken his third successive Brazilian pole position for what will be the most important race of his life. With a championship to be decided, the Brazilian driver has put his Ferrari in the best possible position for the start of tomorrow’s race. However, despite a strong effort from his team mate, Kimi Raikkonen was demoted to third after a stonking lap from qualifying-master Jarno Trulli. Lewis Hamilton will start the race from fourth, with Heikki Kovalainen just behind in fifth. Fernando Alonso took sixth with Sebastian Vettel in seventh, Nick Heidfeld in eighth, Bourdais in ninth and Timo Glock in tenth.

  • I’m thankful that this result has meant the race (especially the start) is going to be very interesting and hopefully exciting.

    It doesn’t change things massively as far as what Lewis and Massa have to do, but will no doubt give Lewis a few doubts at the back of his mind.

    He’ll still win the title though. Won’t he?

    Trulli holding everyone up and letting Massa run away, Kimi and Lewis on the same row, heading into T1 side-by-side…

    …I don’t think I’m be able to sleep tonight!

    …and with Alonso attempting a move up the inside of Lewis at the same time…

    If it’s as good as it could be, I’ll not sleep for a week!

  • with Alonso attempting a move up the inside of Lewis at the same time

    Given his apparent hatred for McLaren, it could just as likely be a move by Alonso up the exhaust pipe of Lewis as well!

  • Trulli running light but is still going to back the pack up, which will suite Alonso with only Heikki to protect Hamiltons back! The weather forecast is for thunderstorms (see the weather forecast for São Paulo).

    So my prediction is that if (and it is a big if) Hamilton can survive the first and second corner he’ll master the wet conditions and win the race as we know the Ferrari isn’t any good in the wet conditions. Having said that I haven’t taken into consideration the stewards and the other 19 cars on the track!

    So, fingers crossed for Lewis and lets hope it’s a clean fight, can’t wait!
