The results of the qualification before the Spanish Grand Prix in 2014

Three weeks passed between the past the Chinese Grand Prix and the Grand Prix of Spain, where most of the teams brought the updated car. But the challenge to pilots Mercedes until no one could. For pole between them continued to fight, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. In the first attempt Nico showed the fastest time, and then was able to further improve its results. But anyway Lewis was ahead, although the struggle for victory promises to be hot. So far, Rosberg retains the lead in the championship, and he wants to stop a series of his partner of three consecutive victories. Hamilton on the contrary – is trying to become a leader Individuals, besides the previously he had never won the Spanish Grand Prix. Daniel Ricardo qualified third in the Red Bull, and he lost for a second pole holder. A fourth result showed Walter Bottas behind the times Lewis by 1.4 seconds. So it is not so much rivals close to Mercedes, how much more behind them. Incredible fifth result set Romain Grosjean on Lotus, although in the second segment, he was on the verge of relegation to the 16th time, while his team-mate Pastor Maldonado and completely crashed his car at the beginning of qualifying, while failing to show any time. Kimi Raikkonen (6th place), this time re-qualified Fernando Alonso (7th place), who last year failed to win a home Grand Prix at the start of the fifth position. But this season is highly unlikely. McLaren’s only representative in the top ten – Jenson Button will start tomorrow from the eighth position, but Felipe Massa on Williams (9th place) at the crucial moment was unable to put the pieces together. The Brazilian looked good in free practice, and his partner showed a high fourth result, so that against this background the achievement Felipe is very modest. In the top ten, and made his way as Sebastian Vettel, but the four-time champion continued to pursue failure. Problems arose in his car on Friday. Fix it could only on Saturday, but in the third segment, it broke again. And if you eventually have to change something, it could face a fine and even with the loss of several positions. All this is particularly unpleasant in Spain, where overtaking is extremely difficult, and major breakthroughs happen rarely. The winner is in Barcelona often the owner of half a league, although there are exceptions. In what scenario this time will learn in Sunday’s race.
