Re: Canadian Grand Prix 2011

Vettel recovered well to come 2nd ( just 0.369s behind Alonso) after a crash in Practice 1 where he went misjudged a chicane and whoosh! he was straight into the wall, locally known as ahem! " champions wall".

Mercedes had a strong Practice 1 session with Rosberg being quickest thanks to their DRS rear wing.

Practice 2 results (from yesterday)

1 5 Fernando Alonso Ferrari 1:15.107 34
2 1 Sebastian Vettel RBR-Renault 1:15.476 0.369 29
3 6 Felipe Massa Ferrari 1:15.601 0.494 33
4 3 Lewis Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes 1:15.977 0.870 26
5 4 Jenson Button McLaren-Mercedes 1:15.989 0.882 25
6 15 Paul di Resta Force India-Mercedes 1:16.089 0.982 34
7 2 Mark Webber RBR-Renault 1:16.102 0.995 28
8 10 Vitaly Petrov Renault 1:16.324 1.217 32
9 9 Nick Heidfeld Renault 1:16.422 1.315 32

Practice 3 and Qualifying later this afternoon and early evening for most of us (or 10.00a.m and 13.00 Canadian time!)

Enjoy!

Looking forward to it..don't know what's with Vettel crashing his cars on Practices' these days..the pressure must be getting to him!

Typical Question posted for him:

Q: Sebastian, another practice crash. Is this going to be your usual weekend warm-up?
Sebastian Vettel: I did ask myself if this really was necessary. Unfortunately it happened and in that moment there was nothing I could have done to avoid it. I lost the rear and there you go. We have again seen today that mistakes seem to be an integral part of this track and the walls are pretty close - and if the mistake happens at the wrong part of the track a crash is pre-programmed.

and the competition

Q: Who have you identified as the biggest competition from what youíve seen today?
SV: Ferrari and McLaren again seem to be the biggest threats, but than as I just said, itís Friday and you never know what programme they are running. Unfortunately they donít post that. I am sure we have not seen everything yet. As for me I am pretty satisfied with the balance of my car.

So looks like Ferrari of Alonso is to watch out for and Mclaren seem pretty strong there this weekend.

Can't wait for Quali and race!

Re: Canadian Grand Prix 2011

Gosh, those times in Practice 3 just kept getting faster and faster!

Vettel fastest in Practice 3.

First Rosberg got the time in the 1:14's then as you know the others followed Alonso, Vettel doing it in just 1:13, now I wonder what time will be set for Qualifying just a couple of hours away?!

Practice 3 results
1 1 Sebastian Vettel RBR-Renault 1:13.381
2 5 Fernando Alonso Ferrari 1:13.701 0.320
3 8 Nico Rosberg Mercedes 1:13.919 0.538
4 6 Felipe Massa Ferrari 1:13.956 0.575
5 4 Jenson Button McLaren-Mercedes 1:14.335 0.954
6 3 Lewis Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes 1:14.469 1.088
7 7 Michael Schumacher Mercedes 1:14.488 1.107
8 10 Vitaly Petrov Renault 1:14.917 1.536
9 14 Adrian Sutil Force India-Mercedes 1:15.217 1.836
10 15 Paul di Resta Force India-Mercedes 1:15.243 1.862

Wouldn't be suprised to see them enter the 1:11's for Quali....Let's see....

Re: Canadian Grand Prix 2011

No surprises in Qualifying...

Vettel nails it ..in 1:13.014 and takes Pole!

Ferrari split the Red Bulls and seem pretty strong on pace!

personally thought he'd do it 1.12's..(guess 1:11 was being too optimistic considering the temperature and cloudy conditions at 13.00)

1. Vettel
2. Alonso
3. Massa
4. Webber (no Kers)
5 Hamilton
6. Rosberg
7. Button

and just outside top 10 was Paul Di Resta (Force India)

Watch Vettel take Lee Mckenzie for a FAST Lap tomorrow
