Egg On My Face…

That is what if felt like after watching Qualifying. Another way to put it would be anti-climactic. Better yet here is a comment from one of my followers, Doug Armstrong and his feelings about qualifying. I don’t think I could have said it any better :

After watching qualifying a great battle it was not! Vettel set the pole time early on and instead of showing their hand for the race he backed off half way through the last lap knowing he had it in the bag. Oh what a feeling it must be knowing that you are so fast that you don’t even have to finish qualifying and still be on the pole…..BORING! With Ferrari fastest in the trap it will be interesting to see if they can make up ground on the cars ahead of them in the race. The tough part for them will be staying with them through the twisties so that they can pass on the straights. Red Bull almost blew it last race with their legal version of traction control, now lets see if they back off this weekend to avoid too many stewards snooping around their car?(or will they just add insult to the field by blowing them away again?)

Well it was a nice though none the less.  Here is your starting grid for the Grand Prix of Korea….
