Jenson Button put down a magnificent lap in Q2 and never looked back. More interesting, however, was who he led home, Kamui Kobayashi and Pastor Maldonado. Sergio Perez was fifth and the other name carrying great expectations was Kimi Raikkonen. He lines up fourth.
The full, unofficial grid. Recall that Mark Webber and Nico Rosberg have five place gearbox penalties coming. I have not factored these penalties into the provisional grid.
- Di Resta
- Vettel (never had the pace)
- de la Rosa
Things are shaping up for another fantastic race with all of the top five yet to win a race this season.
