The results of the qualification to the European Grand Prix 2012

After the Canadian Formula 1 is back in the Old World, where today held a qualification before the European Grand Prix in 2012 at the city circuit in Valencia. Well, in the fight for pole quickly become a pilot of the Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel. Vettel is partly the result can be called somewhat surprising. On the one hand, it showed the best time in the second Friday practice, on the other – in the first two segments of qualifying Sebastian did not look too confident. But in the final attempt two-time world champion brought nearest rival three-tenths of a second. A density of the results on the racetrack in Valencia is incredible. For example, this time in the top ten there were no pilots Scuderia Ferrari. Toward the close of the second segment Roman knocked out dozens of Fernando Alonso, who in the end was not enough to tenth place four thousandths of a second! The novel itself is in the final almost won, but in the beginning it was ahead of Pastor Maldonado, and that, in turn, beat Sebastian Vettel and then Hamilton (2nd place). Thus, Maldonado and Grosjean will start tomorrow with the 3rd and 4th places respectively. Jenson Button, who was in the last four races pursue failures, like the former began to take shape, but so far the results are extremely unstable. The Englishman was able to go to the final segment of qualifying, but showed there is only ninth. And this is the second time against his partner at McLaren. Fifth before the European Grand Prix qualified Kimi Raikkonen, and behind it there is Nico Rosberg (6th place), Kamui Kobayashi (7th), and on the eighth and tenth places were pilots of the team Force India – Nico Hulkenberg and Paul di Resta, respectively. Excellent results showed Heikki Kovalainen (16th) at Caterham, who not only managed to get into the second segment, but determined there to Daniel Ricardo Toro Rosso, with his circle Finn drove to a hard tire! As you know, it is not easy to overtake in Valencia, and the last few years has consistently won the race winner of the pole position. And the gap, with whom Vettel qualified today, allows us to call it one of the main contenders for victory tomorrow. But this year is too much depends on the rubber, so that the appearance of the eighth winner is still quite possible. Judging by the speed, Grosjean, Maldonado and Raikkonen have a definite chance to climb tomorrow on the top step of the podium, although Vettel and Hamilton will try to stop them.
