Qualifying: China 2010 – Disappointment

With relatives visiting this weekend this blog post will be shorter than normal, and published from my iPhone. That’s if the WordPress App can manage not to lose it like it did with version one of this very post!

Anyway, after a fantastic showing in all three practice sessions and the first two sessions of qualifying I’d consider Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton’s 5th and 6th places respectively, to be disappointing. I expected so much more, and evidently so did Lewis Hamilton given his post qualifying interview.

Not for the first time this season I’ll be hoping for rain to mix things up in the race. I can only hope that the two McLaren MP4-25s have more in the way of race pace than their qualifying positions would indicate, and maybe the McLaren’s superior reliability will come into play.

If’ll be interesting to see Jenson, and especially Lewis, battling with those in front of them, assuming they have the performance levels needed to do just that!

It’s entirely possible that there is a reason for the drop in success during Q3, but as I’m indisposed I haven’t had time to look for answers – please leave a comment with any explanations that have been given, I’ll be entirely grateful.
