Good performances by Force India in Belgian and Italian GP, re-kindled my interest in F1. Last couple of races the McLarens and Ferraris are performing better than they did in the first half of the season. This is the first time since I began watching F1 that the McLarens or the Ferraris not occuping any of the top two slots in the constructors championship. Brawn-Mercedes sitting pretty on top of the constructors campionship table and Jenson Button and Barrichello of the same team are in first and second positions leading the Drivers Championship table.
Japanese GP Qualifying
The Qualifying was accident prone. Three drivers Jaime Alguersuari on Torro Rosso-Ferrari, Timo Glock on Williams-Toyota and Heikki Kovalainen on McLaren-Mercedez crashed. Timo Glock’s accident was serious not sure if will be able to race tomorrow. Every time a car crash red-flag was waved, lot of time was lost in the process.
Sebastian Vettel lead Qualifing Red Bull-Renault ahead of Jarno Trulli on Toyota and Lewis Hamilton on McLaren-Mercedes. Force India’s Adrian Sutil ended fourth.
However the Brawn pair, Fernando Alonso, Adrian Sutil and Sebastian Buemi are demoted 5 places for failing to slow when yellow flags were waved in a crash-strewn qualifying session [starting grid]. I hope Force India will be able to score some points, and Button be able to keep his championship lead. 2 more races remaining this season Vettel has a slim chance of upsetting Button’s lead. It is interesting to see how this will unfold.
Looking forward to watch the race tomorrow.
