Nico Rosberg won the qualification before the GP of Spain 2013

Nico Rosberg won the pole position in front of the Spanish Grand Prix in 2013, setting in his first attempt of the final segment of the high standard that none of the rivals to overcome failed. A second attempt at German even one-tenth as a result of interrupted ahead of closest pursuer in the two and a half tenths. And the closest pursuer Rosberg was his team mate Lewis Hamilton. Mercedes were quick enough at the weekend, but hardly anyone could have imagined that the two car team from Brackley will be on the first line of the grid. Spain qualified third Sebastian Vettel, leaving behind the main rivals for the championship itself in the face of Kimi Raikkonen (4th place) and Fernando Alonso (5th place). A total of one-thousandth of Alonso behind his teammate Felipe Massa (6th) – Ferrari drivers clearly relied on better results. Should be placed Romain Grosjean (7th place) and Mark Webber (8th place), and made ​​their way into the top ten as Sergio Perez (9th place) and Paul di Resta (10th place). Last year’s winner of the Grand Prix of Spain Pastor Maldonado this time failed to break even in the second segment of training – a form of the Williams team this season is far from ideal. According to statistics, in the last 16 races at Barcelona won the pole holders them 14 times. The other two victories got pilots started from the second position. Will the riders to continue the tradition of the Mercedes or too intense tire wear will not allow them to win the first victory of the season? We’ll know tomorrow.
