The results of the qualification before the Chinese Grand Prix in 2011

Between the second and third stages of the Formula 1 2011 season only a week, so today held a qualification before the Chinese Grand Prix, which will be the final stage in the first part of outbound Asian tour. As in the first two Grand Prix of the season, out of reach for the rest of the participants of the championship was the team of Red Bull Racing. Although it would be better to say that out of reach for the rest of the world turned out to be the champion last year – Sebastian Vettel. That he won his third consecutive pole position this year and the third consecutive pole on the track of Shanghai. But his teammate – Mark Webber experiencing some trudosti another free practice and in qualifying and did the Australians something went wrong. In the first segment, most teams used the soft rubber compound that allowed them to show very good results. This forced the team leaders also “change the shoes” into the soft tires, but Webber somehow did not, and as a result turns out only on line 18 of the final protocol. The car stopped in the middle of the track and race, two and a half minutes to the end, had to suspend the red flags. Sluggishness Chinese marshals failed to promptly return the car to the pits Vitaly, so in the third segment Petrov was not involved, although it was him. Otherwise, the penalty for it in five places. The ending of the second segment of qualifying proved chaotic as the track time have left a huge number of pilots inadvertently interfere with each other to show good results. For example, Nick Heidfeld, who had at that time, no time at all, could only qualify sixteenth. Michael Schumacher a little mistake, showing only the fourteenth time. Because of this, the final ten were able to get the two pilots of the team Toro Rosso – Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari and Paul di Resta of Force India. Show results in the second qualifying Jenson Button Vettel “brought” seven tenths of a second. With third place Lewis Hamilton will start tomorrow. Quarter was Nico Rosberg, confirming good shape Mercedes GP, which is demonstrated in the course of training, the German team. The fifth and sixth places went to Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa respectively. If Sebastian Vettel tomorrow everything is done correctly, it will win a third consecutive victory of the season, but McLaren drivers will try our best to keep Cebu “quiet life”, and breakouts fast cars from the depths of the peloton will have to please the audience.
