Vettel Dominates in Hungary for Another Red Bull Pole

July 31, 2010

Sebastian Vettel took his seventh pole of the season this afternoon, in qualifying for tomorrow’s Hungarian Grand Prix, while McLaren struggled from a lack of downforce, the current champion dropping out in Q2.

Vettel set a time of 1:18.773 to qualify ahead of his teammate Mark Webber, who had been a contender until his final lap. The Ferraris find themselves on the second row of the grid, Fernando Alonso in third, ahead of his teammate, Felipe Massa, who returns to the track for the first time since his horrific accident in Q2 last year. Lewis Hamilton is a tenth behind the Brazilian, with Nico Rosberg in sixth, out-qualifying his teammate, Michael Schumacher, who will start down in 14th.

Vitaly Petrov, Robert Kubica, Pedro de la Rosa and Nico Hulkenberg round out the top 10, while Jenson Button will start in 11th after a poor Q2, while struggling for grip.

On a track which is renowned for being difficult to pass on, the start will be vital, and the key to a successful race. Who will win the 2010 Hungarian Grand Prix? Tune in to BBC1 at 1pm tomorrow.
