Alonso on pole in Hungary after total chaos


Fernando Alonso does it again. at Hungary. He will be starting tomorrow’s Hungarian GP at pole position, his 18th career pole.

There was chaos after the timing systems failed in the closing laps, which meant that no-one knew who was on pole and everyone just speculating on what might be the final standings for the race.

Sebastian Vettel is second ahead of his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber.  Vettel finally in Q3 overcame Webber’s time after trailing behind him throughout this weekend.

Lewis Hamilton will start the race fourth.

Felipe Massa had an accident, as covered in the previous blog, and will not be racing this weekend. The object came from Barrichello’s rear suspension and hit him on the crash helmet, ripping one corner of his visor off and cutting Massa’a eye. He is incredibly lucky to escape a major injury here. (We here wish him speedy recovery)

Brawn GP were a surprise today as everybody expected them to make up the lost ground to Red Bull this weekend. Rubens Barrichello didn’t qualify for Q3 while Jenson Button only qualified eighth.  The question is whether do they have enough funds for further development?
