For the first time this year, Jenson Button has failed to qualify in the top five, the Briton’s next worse result from qualifying this year being a P5 in Shanghai. However, all is not lost for the Brawn pilot and although fuel weights are not known yet, you cannot completely rule the championship leader out of a race victory. However, the Red Bull pair look very good for a dominating race tomorrow, with Sebastian Vettel on pole and Mark Webber looking handy in P3.
Following on from the last race’s grid post shoutout… this grid post goes to Tom McLoughlin and Andy Murphy from Edelman PR Agency, who keep trying to get me into Formula One events only for it to either go wrong at their end or at mine. Keep trying guys – I’m sure it will all come good at some point.
