Turkish Grand Prix 2011: Saturday Qualifying

Car 1 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, Position: POLE POSITION (3rd Practice P1, 1:26.037)
Im unequivocally happy. It was a bit humorous in Q3 today, as both Mark and we motionless we would skip a second run and so we finished progressing than normal. It was a bizarre feeling, as a other cars are on lane environment times and we are in a garage examination they competence kick you, yet we can usually watch a screens and theres zero we can do. It was an peculiar feeling yet a good preference to save tyres for tomorrows race. we messed adult a automobile yesterday morning, so we missed a event in a afternoon, yet a guys bound it for currently and we cruise they did a unequivocally good job. We have been adult there with a times today, nonetheless we didnt have a difficulty giveaway morning and we had a bit to locate up. we like a lane here that helps and it was good to see that, yet many laps, we was means to come behind and find a rhythm, so all-in-all Im unequivocally happy today.

Car 2 MARK WEBBER, Position: 2nd (3rd Practice P3, 1:26.404)

I would have favourite to have got a integrate some-more tenths to have a margin; apparently Sebastian did a unequivocally good path for pole, yet my path wasnt too bad. We spoke before subordinate and motionless that, as tomorrow is going to be a prolonged race, each path we could save currently competence assistance tomorrow. It turns out that were in a best probable grid positions and a group did a good job, as we have saved a set of tyres too, so a looking good. There were some good decisions from a team. Im happy with currently and am looking brazen to tomorrows race.

A good group opening currently and a illusory come behind from Sebastian after a severe day yesterday. All a guys worked unequivocally tough to make certain a automobile was prepared for this morning and Sebastian repaid them in a best probable approach with an glorious path on his initial run to get a pole. Mark was right adult there too and we have cumulative a front quarrel of a grid. We inaugurated not to do a second run with both drivers; we knew it would be a small tight, yet strategically we trust it was a right thing to do, as both drivers now have a new set of tyres accessible for tomorrows race.


A unequivocally good outcome currently a good to close out a front quarrel again. It was a good opening from Sebastian, and even some-more so when we cruise his miss of using yesterday. Mark also did a good pursuit today, so we demeanour brazen to a competition tomorrow. It was flattering well-spoken for a engines currently so we will see in a race.

Its a deteriorate of firsts this year: a initial time Red Bull Racing will urge dual universe titles and a initial time India will seem on a calendar. The Turkish Grand Prix is noted for Sebastian, as it was a initial time he gathering a automobile during a GP weekend, however it was a year after his initial F1 exam drive.

The initial time we ever gathering an F1 automobile was about a year before my initial GP appearance; it was in Jerez in Sep 2005. we got a call from Mario Theissen, who was operative with Williams- BMW. At initial we suspicion it was a joke, yet he pronounced no, it was critical and he wanted me to go to Williams for a seat-fitting. we only focused on removing as fit as we could, so as not to demeanour stupid. When we got to Jerez, we was so nervous. The guys were all there and they were looking during me like what does this child wish here? we contingency have been about 18. After 5 laps we came behind to a pits and attempted to play it cold oh yeah, Im totally on tip of this yet we was totally lost. we pronounced to myself: OK, we am so unapproachable to have tested a genuine F1 car, yet this is a mans world, this is not for me. we was totally overwhelmed. Afterwards we was dead! we attempted to not let anybody see, yet my neck was left completely. we have to contend though, on a outside, we remember we was utterly calm; Ive seen a footage too and it seems that way. It was a lot to take in yet we did unequivocally suffer myself and zero has changed.

My initial Grand Prix weekend came in Turkey 2006. we remember we had been in Greece on holiday. It took ages to get there and after dual days we got another call from Mario, who was by afterwards conduct of a Sauber F1 team. He said: Weve motionless to put we in a automobile in Turkey, and we will do a seat-fit a day after tomorrow. we pronounced OK, packaged my things and afterwards gathering all a approach behind to Switzerland to a Sauber bureau and thats how we got into Formula One as a exam driver.
