Red Bull and Mark Webber continued where they left off in Barcelona as they yet again clinched pole position, this time for the Grand Prix of Monaco. Mark Webber scored his second consecutive pole position and will hope for a second consecutive victory on the twisty and narrow street circuit where the pole-sitter has won all but one of the last six or so races. Renault’s Robert Kubica was surprise second fastest, ahead of Sebastian Vettel.
Ferrari’s Felipe Massa will start from P4 as he represents his team’s best chance for points and maybe a podium finish as teammate Fernando Alonso crashed out in final practice and was unable to participate in Qualifying. Alonso will start from the end of the grid and any points would be a bonus. McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton sits in P5 followed by the Mercedes’ of Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher in P6 and P7. Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello occupy the P8 and P9 positions with Force India’s Vitantonio Liuzzi completing the top ten.
I missed the live telecast of the qualifying session but am catching up on the repeat as I speak so excuse me for the lack of any descriptions.
