Lewis Hamilton Qualifies 4th In BrazilNovember 1st, 2008
The Brazilian qualifying is an important part for Hamilton’s championship because being in the middle of the pack more accidents happen which is not what Lewis needs. He just needs a solid points finish and there’s no better way of doing this than by winning the race.
In the first qualifying session the Ferrari’s seem to have been struggling a bit with under-steer, this might be because of the used tyres. But then at the end of the session Massa managed to get into first and Kimi into second position. Lewis Hamilton was safely through into Q2.
Fernando Alonso who wants to see a Ferrari win because of his grudge against McLaren finished Q1 in 4th position.
Kimi Raikkonen continued to struggle in Q2 with under-steer even though he was using soft tyres but still managed to get into first position for a brief moment. Then Felipe Massa topped Kimi’s time which was then topped by our man Lewis Hamilton.
Hamilton finished Q2 in 3rd, Massa 4th and Kimi 6th. Alonso make it into Q3 in 9th position. Kovalainen topped the Q2 timesheet followed by Vettel.
The Ferrari’s seem to be very light by taking the first two positions at the beginning of qualifying. Vettel’s also near the front at be beginning. Lewis made a few mistakes at the beginning which lost him a few tenths.
This is by far the most intense qualifying I’ve ever seen with many last second changes and the surprise being that Trulli is starting from 2nd position. This unfortunately pushed Lewis Hamilton down to 4th position which is the dirty side of the second row.
Hamilton’s girlfriend, Nicole Scherzinger, is also going to be supporting him at the race.
It sure has the makings of an intense and historic race – keep your head cool, Lewis! You can do it!
