When qualifying was already coming to an end, some of the leaders still went on his second attempt. Among them was Sebastian, who piloted virtually on the brink and still managed to beat the time of Hamilton. But it still was Button. Crossing the finish line, Jenson also surpassed the time of his running mate, but the Englishman Sebastian vrmeni were just nine thousandths of a second! The result – the second result. And what Lewis himself? He also went on the road, but it was too late – the completion of lap Hamilton saw the checkered flag and lost his attempt to pass on the result. Mark Webber at the end of the qualification there was only sixth, behind both pilots Ferrari, with Felipe Massa (4th place) was ahead of Fernando Alonso (5th place). But their way into the top ten Schumacher, Senna, Kobayashi and Petrov decided in the final session did not show time – in that order, and they will start tomorrow. And if Kamui even appeared on the road, but did not complete a lap, the other boxes do not leave.

As a result of the German pilot he showed no time and will start from the distant position 23. This is the worst starting position Rosberg of his career. But tomorrow will be an exciting race on one of the most interesting and challenging trails whole Championship. Recall Sebastian lacks only one point to advance to win his second title.
