Qualifying for Sunday’s Chinese Grand Prix was again dominated by Sebastian Vettel in his all-conquering Red Bull.  His lap time, set in the early stages of the pole position shoot-out proved to be a too higher target for Lewis Hamilton or Jenson Button to battle for P1.

So now, our attentions turn to the start – can Vettel maintain his lead into turn one to then scamper off in his usual fashion and lead from lights to flag to make it 3 in a 1 for 2011 or can the British McLaren duo keep tabs on the young German or perhaps get to turn 1 first?  It will exciting to watch, that’s for sure.

As well as the front row battles, the other driver to look out for especially will be Nick Heidfeld and Mark Webber – both start further back than they should be, with cars that are quicker than those around them.  If Heidfeld can recreate his stunning start from last weekend he could be up in the top 10 by the first corner, and as for Webber, we imagine he’ll be pleased to get his motor home in the points after his terrible start to the season (well, relatively) just got even worse…
