After three weeks that have passed since the race in China – the third stage of the World Championship Formula 1 2011 season, drivers and teams returned to Europe, where the first race will be the Turkish stage or circuit of Istanbul Park. For Saturday’s qualifying in Turkey a little cleared up: the temperature rose to 18 degrees and rain, which went on Friday afternoon, I stopped. At this time in the final segment broke the five top teams at full strength, including Red Bull, McLaren, Ferrari, Mercedes GP and Lotus Renault GP. Many teams prepared for the Turkish stage pack, but the balance is seriously affected not only Mercedes GP markedly increased, but their progress was evident even at the last race in China. Pole went to the newly Vettel, and got so easy that both Red Bull pilots made ​​a single attempt on the final segment, and at the very beginning. When before the end of qualifying was only a few minutes, and the bulk of the pilots rushed to the track, Vettel and Webber were in the garage, to save a set of soft rubber. As a result, Mark has kept the second result, even though it almost unable to “get it” Nico Rosberg, ahead of Lewis Hamilton (4th place). Fernando Alonso (5th place) ahead of Jenson Button (6th place), followed by the British in the battle tomorrow will leave Russian Vitaly Petrov (7th place). Weather forecast for Sunday promises to re-cooling and possible rain. But even without the rain race in Turkey promises to be very interesting. Controlled rear wing can be used in the race in a very interesting part of the route – it was there last year collided Vettel and Webber.
