Brawn GP - Qualifying - Barcelona

Yet another nail biting qualifying session for Brawn GP. Rubens set the early pace in Q3 leaving everyone a tough challenge to beat. Vettel managed to pip Rubens time and that left only Jenson the chance to post a quicker time, not before making my nails even shorter only managing to get another lap in crossing the line with mere seconds to run.

Jenson had this to say during the post qually interview:

"It could have gone very, very wrong," said Button. "We timed it quite well but I had Kubica who I thought was on an out lap and I had to let him past.

"The guys said you had four seconds less than a proper lap time to get across the line in time. I got across the line just with a couple of seconds to spare - it was more luck than judgement.

"It was the best lap of my weekend. I had been having some trouble with this guy low fuel but I got the lap on the high fuel.

"I am very happy and it is a bit of a surprise in a way, when I heard Shov's voice on the radio it felt pretty good."

As soon as the race weights are declared I will upload them for you. Also in the post qualifying press conference Rubens was wearing a baseball cap with Duracell on the front. Maybe another sponsorship tie in on the cards.

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
