Sebastian Vettel said he had a tough day today, but it couldn’t be any better for him and his championship bid as he yet again managed to take Red Bull to pole position, leaving Mark Webber head scratching in second place.  Can Webber take the lead after the first corner – he’d sure love to.

Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg both out-performed their team mates again and looked rather racey, even out pacing the McLarens, which have looked to be on top from the practice session timesheets.  Can Michael Schumacher’s big comeback be any more laid back?  He’s been out-qualified by his team mate again and also by Robert Kubica in the Renault.

So thoughts on the start?  And how do you see the race panning out?  Rain is a strong possibility, that’s for sure.  Stay tuned to Badger for more on this morning’s qualifying, in the mean time, here’s the starting grid:
