The results of the qualification before the British Grand Prix in 2012

In a difficult qualification of rain before the British Grand Prix in 2012 his twenty-first pole position in his career won Fernando Alonso, who just a few hundredths surpassed the result of Mark Webber. The Aussie is at your last attempt failed to reach the time of the Spaniard. Even starting with Friday’s free practice at Silverstone pouring rain, which intervened in the course of almost all the sessions of the Formula 1 races. I was no exception and qualifications, and six minutes before the end of the second segment of the management was forced to suspend the race red flags. As a result, the break lasted almost half an hour. However, in the final segment of the many riders went on intermediate tires, and those who prefer to put the rain, corrected as soon as possible. At the beginning of the best time is always changing, but in the end point is placed Alonso, who, if he was not punished for the improvement of time at the end of the second segment under yellow flags in the race tomorrow will take the first place. Mark Webber ahead of his team-mate Sebastian Vettel (4th place), which has yielded excellent results Michael Schumacher (3rd place). Felipe Massa qualified fifth, sixth – Kimi Raikkonen, and then settled Pastor Maldonado (7th place), Lewis Hamilton (8th place), Nico (9th place) and Romain Grosjean (10th place). The latter showed a good fifth time in the second segment, but overdid it on the next round, once in the gravel trap. However, the start Acne, without penalty opponents would only nineteenth. Weather forecast for Sunday also promises to rain, so the race can happen, anything. At the same time it would like to avoid long stops red flags, or may fire a new rule that race, with all the breaks can not last more than four hours.
