I left my weekday alarm set (oops), so here I sat on a dank overcast Saturday morning, wide awake way too early wondering what my plan would be, when I realized that F1 qualies were on! Woohoo!
Then the broadcast started… woo! huh? Yuck! what a mess! This should be interesting.
First to get knocked out: Barrichello, Piquet, Nakajima, Button & Sutil.
Kovalainen is a mad man! LOL! hanging it out there today like it’s bright and sunny.
It’s raining pretty heavy now. Everyone trying to get out sooner rather than later to get a good run in as the “dry line” is disappearing. Hamilton and crew rethink the intermediate tires decision and Kimi has an “OH SHIT” moment but manages to right it and keep it off the wall. (holy rodeo moment batman!)
ooh… Lewis does a nice job of holding on during that little spinny off.
it’s ridiculous on that track in places now. Serious standing water. Some of the heavy hitters and their teams got caught out during that segment waiting too long to make a run or making a bad choice (lets ask Lewis how he feels about the intermediate tires right now… )
Knocked out Q2: Kubica, Fisichella, Coulthard, Kaikkonen (!?) & Hamilton (!?)
Kovalainen came out quick right away. Visibility was horrible. Bourdais (who hates this car according to a quote in an article this week) managed to pull off 4th spot, despite the best spin of the day.
But when all was said and done, it was Webber 3rd (waves at Gary) Kovalainen 2nd, and Vettel on pole… in Monza… in a Toro Rosso.
bwahaha! 3 Red Bull cars out qualify Ferrari… what???
Glad I saw it with my own eyes.
Ok… going to take myself out for breakfast now.
