Webber on Pole in Turkey, While Hamilton Splits Red Bulls

May 29, 2010

Mark Webber made it a hat trick of poles in qualifying for tomorrow’s Turkish Grand Prix, this afternoon, while Lewis Hamilton completed the front row, splitting Webber from his Red Bull teammate.

Sebastian Vettel had been fastest in both Q1 and Q2, but lost out when it mattered, finishing third, four tenths behind Webber who set a time of 1:26.295 for pole.

Hamilton looked like he was going to be the one to end Red Bull’s run of six consecutive poles, but found himself a tenth off Webber’s time when he crossed the line for the final time.

Hamilton’s teammate, Jenson Button, who starts fourth in tomorrow’s race, had been on his final hot lap, when Michael Schumacher, who starts fifth, crashed out at turn eight, after the clock had stopped, bringing out the yellow flags, meaning Button had to lift off the power, seeing the end of his session.

Schumacher’s teammate Nico Rosberg will start the race from sixth, ahead of Robert Kubica in seventh, Felipe Massa in eighth, Vitaly Petrov ninth, and Kamui Kobayashi in tenth.

Fernando Alonso struggled in the Ferrari, getting out of shape on his final lap and missing out on the top ten shoot-out, down in 12th.

Adrian Sutil starts just ahead of the Ferrari driver in 11th, with Pedro de la Rosa in 13th, Sebastien Buemi 14th, Rubens Barrichello 15th, Jaime Alguersuari 16th, Nico Hulkenberg 17th, Vitantonio Liuzzi 18th, Jarno Trulli 19th, Heikki Kovalainen 20th, Timo Glock 21st, Bruno Senna 22nd, Lucas di Grassi 23rd and Karun Chandhok down in 24th.

The race starts tomorrow, live on BBC1 at 1pm.
