The results of the qualification before the British GP in 2011

Qualification to the British Grand Prix was supposed to answer the main question, Will the serious balance of the entry into force of restrictions on the use of “hot” exhaust. Already on the weekend the rules were changed several times, but with the next race at all limiting and can be abolished. As demonstrated by today’s qualification serzenym changes to the amendments to the regulations failed. The ninth pole of nine grand prix was for the Red Bull, however, this turned out to be just ahead of Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel – second. The second line of the grid took the Scuderia Ferrari drivers – Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa respectively. Jenson Button qualified fifth, but his team-mate at McLaren – Hamilton only tenth. In addition, the top ten this time broke Paul di Resta (6th place), Pastor Maldonado (7th place), Kamui Kobayashi (8th place) and Nico Rosberg (9th place). Vitaly Petrov will go into battle tomorrow with a distant 14th place. The feeling that the changes in the rules of the hardest hit it is for Lotus Renault GP, the design of the car which was originally built around the system with a “hot” exhaust. Already since Friday’s training, held on a wet track, it was obvious that the rate of Reno has fallen markedly. But on dry pavement team showed quite pale results. The decision to cancel the innovations in the regulations can be adopted tomorrow, but will enter into force only with the next race.
