Turkish Grand Prix Quailfying Analysis


Mark Webber took pole for the fourth time this season and for the third race in a row but the gap is smaller in this race than before ,as we saw Mclaren and Mercedes made a good step forward and Ferrari are struggling.
With the track changing all the time it will be very hard not to make a mistake as we saw from all the drivers all weekend.
We take a team by team analysis:
Red Bull
Mark Webber. 1st 1:26.295
Sebastian Vettel .3rd 1:26.760
Red Bull drivers were very close all weekend and in Qualifying it seemed like Sebastian Vettel had the upper hand but he could not deliver a great lap when it matters and Webber did but it .
Mclaren
Lewis Hamilton. 2nd 1:26.433
Jenson Button. 4th 1:26.781
Mclaren seemed quick all weekend and they were very close to the Red Bull and to take pole for the first time this season with Lewis Hamilton driving a great qualifying today Button made a good jop too but the gap to Lewis was big this weekend.
Mercedes
Micheal Shumacher.5th 1:26.857
Nico Rosberg.6th 1:26.952
Mercedes made a great work today putting both their drivers in the third row but ths time Micheal Shumcher beat teammate Rosberg and will start from fifth place in the clean side of the track which might give him a good chance to make places at the start.
Renault
Robert Kubica. 7th 1m 27.039
Vitaly Petrov 9th 1m 27.430
As Always Robert Kubica made to Q3 but this time Petrov was also able to make it too ,Renault are making small steps forward with every race.
Ferrari
Felipe Massa. 8th 1m 27.082
Fernando Alonso. 12th 1m 27.612

Felipe Massa Said he made the most out of the F10 and even thought he love the track he said 8th place was he best he can and that they need to analyze the data to see where they are lacking. Alonso made a mistake on his last lap in Q2 and couldn't make it to Q3 and said that the most he could do.
BMW Sauber
Kamui Kobayashi. 10th 1m 28.122
Pedro de la Rosa. 13th 1m 27.879

Kobayashi was very pleased to get through to Q3 for the first time, and that it was a significant boost for the team after Monaco. De la Rosa said the balance of his C29 was generally good, but that his had been at its best on the prime tyre.
Force India
Adrian Sutil.11th 1m 27.525
Vitantonio Liuzzi .18th 1m 28.958

After missing all of FP3 with a hydraulic problem Sutil was unlucky to get squeezed out of Q3 by Schumacher, having done a great job for Force India. Liuzzi was again completely mystified by his car's lack of traction and snap oversteer, and reported that while he lost four-tenths to Sutil in the first few corners, he was quicker through Turn Eight. Only Liuzzi used the SRW today.
Toro Rosso
Sebastien Buemi.14th 1m 28.273
Jaime Alguersuari.16th 1m 28.540

Buemi said that Q3 was beyond the team's reach here, but that he'd expected better than 14th as he'd been ahead of the BMW Saubers in FP3. Alguersuari also felt there had been potential to do better, especially as he'd been blocked by De la Rosa in Turn Seven and had to change his line in a hurry.
Williams
Rubens Barrichello. 15th 1m 28.392
Nico Hulkenberg.17th 1m 28.841

After playing second fiddle to Hulkenberg through practice, Barrichello jumped ahead when it mattered but said that the FW32 seriously lacked straightline speed here and that the car was less suited to Istanbul Park than it had been Monaco. Hulkenberg reported a tough day, with oversteer on the exit to Turn 7 his second Q2 run.
Lotus
Jarno Trulli.19th 1m 30.237
Heikki Kovalainen.20th 1m 30.519

Yet again, Lotus were top of the new teams, and they keep moving closer to the established midfield runners. Trulli had a few minor problems on Saturday morning, but was happy with the way he used his two sets of prime Bridgestone's. Kovalainen found the track too slippery for his first run on the option tyre, but was happy with his second go on the prime and especially praised the balance and stability in the high-speed corners.
Virgin
Timo Glock. 21th 1m 30.744
Lucas di Grassi. 22th 1m 31.989

After their difficult day yesterday, a lot of overnight data analysis put Virgin right back on track and Glock was very close to the Lotuses and described the difference in his car as 'night and day'. But for a mistake in the second sector, he felt he should have split the green and yellow cars. Di Grassi, however, had a tough day, a power loss in Q1 frustrating his efforts to do better than 23rd.
HRT
Bruno Senna.22th 1m 31.266
Karun Chandhok.24th 1m 32.060

Senna was fairly happy with his performance as he was able to split the Virgins. Chandhok said that his car was slower than his team mate's on the straight, and that using the prime tyre instead of the option that Senna went for cost him another chunk of time.
