Qualifying For The Canadian GP, Oh The Rain…
Here is all you need to know about Qualifying for this weekends GP in Montreal. It was cold and wet and rained off and on. Therefor it is no surprise that the cars that generate a higher core temp in regards to their tires were the cars that were quickest in the final session. So the two teams that are experiencing greater tire degradation do to overheating the tires in dry conditions, in this case were the teams that had the best chance at pole: Red Bull and Mercedes.
Fernando Alonso – couldn’t do it.
Felipe Massa – definately could not do it.
Kimi Raikkonen – couldn’t to it.
Roman Grojean – couldn’t do it.
McLaren duo – still can’t do it.
The exception to this was Valtteri Bottas for Williams who stuck his car on the second row. Great job by the rookie and lets hope he turns that into a decent result for himself and Williams F1.
The updated forecast tomorrow is now for rain which means any advantage that Ferrari and Lotus have over their rivals has just been chucked into the St. Lawrence River and is now floating far far away. Well that’s racing…
