Spanish Grand Prix 11-13 May 2012

Pretty exciting qualifying today...which had Hamilton on Pole...but he was stripped of that title as he was short fueled and had to stop on track as soon as he finished his lap...as result he is disqualified and starts the race at the back of the grid.

Pastor Maldonado (Williams) is currently at the start of the grid (1st ever Pole for him and best ever qualifying...shame about Senna!)


DSQ 4 Lewis Hamilton McLaren-Mercedes 1:22.583 1:22.465 1:21.707 17
2 18 Pastor Maldonado Williams-Renault 1:23.380 1:22.105 1:22.285 14
3 5 Fernando Alonso Ferrari 1:23.276 1:22.862 1:22.302 15
4 10 Romain Grosjean Lotus-Renault 1:23.248 1:22.667 1:22.424 14
5 9 Kimi Räikkönen Lotus-Renault 1:23.406 1:22.856 1:22.487 13
6 15 Sergio Perez Sauber-Ferrari 1:24.261 1:22.773 1:22.533 14
7 8 Nico Rosberg Mercedes 1:23.370 1:22.882 1:23.005 17
8 1 Sebastian Vettel Red Bull Racing-Renault 1:23.850 1:22.884 no time 14
9 7 Michael Schumacher Mercedes 1:23.757 1:22.904 no time 15
10 14 Kamui Kobayashi Sauber-Ferrari 1:23.386 1:22.897 no time 14
11 3 Jenson Button McLaren-Mercedes 1:23.510 1:22.944 13
12 2 Mark Webber Red Bull Racing-Renault 1:23.592 1:22.977 8


So new order is

1, Pastor Maldonado (Williams)
2, Alonso (Ferrari)
3, Grosjean (Lotus)

Both Lotus looking pretty fast!

Should be tactical and fun tomorrow....

Re: F1 -2012 Race & Points update

We have had 4 races so far this year and each time a different driver winning!!

How exciting is that?! Don't think F1 has been this exciting for a long time...

and even tomorrow's 5th RACE (Spain) could see a different driver take the win..maybe a LOTUS even, who knows?!

Re: F1 -2012 Race & Points update

As a fervent Hamilton and Button supporter i am horrified that once again Mclaren have stuffed up one of their drivers.

Whitmarsh needs to get a grip or get out. Shekelstone will be happy to see a top driver having to push through the field. As will the FIA.

The real fans snd supporters deserve better than this.

Mercedes need to put the boot in.

Good luck to all for a great race...

Be safe

Steve.

Re: F1 -2012 Race & Points update

Been a fan for 30 odd years and this season is one of the worst for me, Schumacher is quite correct about the tyres, i want to see the fastest drivers in the fastest cars going flat out from the start to the finish, not overtaking with drs flaps and in the pits because the tyres don't last for more than 5 minutes, its become a show and not a race, its crap sorry!

Victory for Williams ended in saddness

Well 5 races, 5 different drivers winning, great news for Williams to have a win after this time.

A great fighting effort from Hamilton starting 24th finishing 8th. Thought the drive thru penalty for Vettel (started 8th, finished 6th) was a bit harsh as he didn't over take under yellow flags but nevertheless guess rules are rules and stewards can interpret and apply as they wish. I sense this may have something to do with making less points difference from Alonso; )

After today's race Vettel and Alonso lead the Championship.

Unfortunately, Pastor Maldonardos' win and celebration was cut short by an explosion in the Williams garage..with black acrid smoke spreading very rapidly, just hope all the team are ok.

Formula 1 personnel injured in Williams fire - F1 news - AUTOSPORT.com

Race 6, Monaco in a couple of weeks time...any predictions of which driver may win?? How about Räikkönen

Making it 6 different drivers winning.... at this rate even Karthikeyan may get a win around Race 20 due to tyre preservation (take your point cuppy).

Re: Spanish Grand Prix 11-13 May 2012

It was an exciting race week-end this one.

It is good to see Williams winning, and a first for Venezuela.

A different start for the few races so far to last season, eh.

All in all a super sunday of sports yesterday.

Haven't managed to see a single race this season and guess I will miss all the rest, too.

Re: Spanish Grand Prix 11-13 May 2012

Had to laugh at Michael Schumacher blaming Bruno Senna for the crash his arrogance is overwhelming. He has also blamed the tyres for the reason why he is struggling when the truth is its the first time in his career that his team mate has been allowed to overtake him so he is not getting wins handed to him on a plate.

Michael has a 5 place penalty at Monaco for the Senna Crash ah well something else for him to moan about.

Re: Spanish Grand Prix 11-13 May 2012

if the rules are broke from a constructor, not driver error, the constructor should be docked points and not the driver!
They had enough fuel in the tank to pass the 1ltr sample if they would have made it back to the pits but to give hamilton a pentalty resulting in him starting from the back is ridiculous.
