Fernando Alonso will be starting from tomorrows' pole position on Silverstone track in Great Britain.
After heavy rain and red flag in second qualifying session and one and half hour wait, competing for the fastest time continued on the fairly wet Silverstone track. Fastest man was Fernando Alonso in his Ferrari after great battle with second fastest Mark Webber in Red Bull.
Seven-time champion Michael Schumacher in Mercedes and two-time champion Sebastian Vettel in Red Bull will be starting from the second row.
Fernando Alonso is the winner of Valencia Grand Prix 2012!
If you missed this race, you missed one of the most thrilling races this year. First half was more of a pure driving, without any major suprises. The things got serious in second half, after the safety car drove off the track.
Sebastian Vettel will be starting from pole position in Sunday's race in Valencia Grand prix 2012.
Qualifying race was really close for the first 10 competitors and there were only minor diffrences in the lap times. Vettel got the best time, now for the 3rd year in a row, following by his all-time rival Lewis Hamilton. Third place was taken by Pastor Maldonado in Williams-Renault.
Big dissapointments are Mark Webber, starting from 19th place and Fernando Alonso from 11th place.
Few weeks ago, there were spy shots of the powerfull Volvo S60 floating around the internet and we made a render, how it may look (picture below). Now it's official, Volvo has released official pictures of the S60 Polestar with hard-to-believe 510 hp.
It was speculated that it will be powered by Yamaha's V8 from the XC90 model and around 400 hp. The truth is far from it, it will be going with the standard these day, turbocharged 3.0-litre inline 6 cylinder, better known from the S60 T6 version.
