For the first time since the 2015 Formula One season started, the winner of last year’s trophy for the most pole positions, Nico Rosberg, made pole at the Formula One Grand Prix in Barcelona at Circuit de Catalunya in Spain. Rosberg was clearly happy, and remarked, "It's just important for the race because it's better to start first than second obviously. Psychologically, yeah, it's good. Feels great. I'm happy." Once again, the Mercedes AMG team has shown speed and reliability on the track. 2014 champion and the season leader, Lewis Hamilton, will start second.
Meanwhile, the comeback of Ferrari, lead by Sebastian Vettel will start third, Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini, fourth. Surprisingly, Toro Rosso driver, Carlos Sainz Jr., did not disappoint Spanish fans when he qualified fifth. Unfortunately, their Formula One hero Fernando Alonso could not get the McLaren-Honda into Q3 and Max Verstappen sixth Vettel’s Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen was seventh and Red Bull Daniil Kvyat was eighth.
The pressure will be on for Nico Rosberg with a mix of high and low speed corners, his teammate Lewis Hamilton, will be right up on his gearbox, with Sebastian Vettel, in search of another championship, seconds behind.
