SEBASTIAN Vettel of Red Bull has taken Pole position for the first race of the 2010 season in the Bahrain desert. His Q3 time was 1:54.101, a speed of 123.491mph.
Ferrari’s Felipe Massa will line up alongside him after setting a time of 1:54.242. His team-mate Fernando Alonso qualified third with a lap of 1:54.608.
McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton is fourth on the grid after setting a lap time of 1:55.217.
The rest of the top 10 are: Rosberg, Webber, Schumacher, Button, Kubica and Sutil.
All the drivers managed to go out and complete flying laps, even the two Hispania drivers Bruno and Chandhok. They both start tomorrow’s race from the back of the grid with fastest times of 2:03.240 and 2:04.904 respectively.
The McLarens just didn’t seem to have the outright pace of Vettel or the Ferraris, and I can’t really see us winning the race tomorrow. But this is F1; anything can happen.
