Turkey 2009: The Grid

Turkey 2009: The Grid

With qualifying completed we now have the grid for tomorrow’s Turkish Grand Prix, held around the demanding Istanbul Park circuit. In the past, Felipe Massa has dominated, but with the shake-up to the general order this season, it is Sebastian Vettel who excited on Saturday and looks set to have a great race. Right behind the Red Bull pilot are both Brawn drivers, and with Jenson Button narrowly missing out on the pole, you cannot rule the Briton out. Rubens Barrichello also appeared to have a stellar lap in qualifying, although the car weights are yet to be published.

This grid post is dedicated to Alex Andronov from SofaF1, who when not contributing to his own group-run site, hosts the pre-race Parade Lap show at Sidepodcast on Sunday mornings prior to the grands prix. During my absence from posting during the Monaco event last time around, my grid post was apparently missed. So this one goes out to Alex and all who listen at Sidepodcast.
