A recap of todays Qualifying at the Formula One Grand Prix in, Barcelona Spain. Today’s event will determine the driver grid line-up. Fans will find out if their favorite team or driver will make pole position at, the Formula One Grand Prix in Spain. Stay tuned to Xiro Xone F1 for, a different perspective of events on the track, in the paddock, and on the social grid.
Qualifying day at the Formula One British Grand Prix was filled with shifting and shuffling, and some say, sabotage. British champion Lewis Hamilton with the Mercedes AMG team was the clear favorite, and fastest on the track. He was on a final run with teammate Rosberg behind him, when he was instructed to abort. Formula One insiders are blaming his team strategist for the bad decision, but as usual, Hamilton is blaming himself. It seems this great young champion cannot catch a break. If he would have disobeyed team orders and continued the run, he would have been criticized for not being a team player. The call cost Hamilton his pole position and a drop to 6th place on the grid. Fans love this driver, and are hope he will rack up more wins, as the season continues.
Some great shifting on the track put players in for the first time, while shuffling, knocked others out. Great shifting lead to Jules Bianchi with the Marrusia team clinching the 12th spot on the grid, while Williams-Martini drivers Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa landed in the 14th and 15th position, respectively
Some serious shuffling on the track have relegated some champions to the back of the grid. Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen are still trying to find their cars, the track, or themselves on the podium. They will have a hard time finding either of those things from the 16th and 18th spot on the grid. This has been a tough year for both of these great drivers.
The starting grid line-up will be Rosberg, Vettel, and Jenson Button. Button is the only other British driver in F1 at the moment,and also a fan favorite. This weekend is special and sentimental for Button, so he asked if everyone will tweet, #PinkForPapa in honor of his late father and the charity they support.
