Shanghai 2009: The Grid

Shanghai 2009: The Grid

With qualifying completed, we can now look at the completed grid for tomorrow’s Chinese Grand Prix. At the front we have a new face for this year; Sebastian Vettel taking the first non-Button pole of 2009 and the German’s career second. Confirming the pace of the Red Bull RB5 is team mate Mark Webber in third. Splitting the Milton Keynes team is surprisingly Fernando Alonso. The Brawns could do no better than fourth and fifth, with Rubens Barrichello out-qualifying Jenson button for the first time this year.
