    Qualifying results out!

    McLaren made a 1-2, Lewis taking pole position.
    Rubens qualified 3rd, the kid behind in 4th place.
    Button managed 5th position, with Iceman in 6th.
    Webber only managed 9th spot.

    Newcomers? Romain Grosjean in P14, and Luca Badoer right at the back.

    Must say that Kovalainen did a great job, managed to qualify just behind Lewis despite NOT having any upgrades.

    Yeah, the Brawns are the heaviest among the top 5, hopefully that can translate to a better race strategy.

    Apparently, from BBC TV's analysis, Brawn said they think they know the source of their tyre problems. But partly due to the higher ambient and track temperatures, their tyres are working again. Hopefully when they get to Spa next week its working at cold temperatures.

    I noticed that the European GP is also using the Digi-flags. And the track looks cleaner and overall, better, as compared to last year.

    Sloppy pit stop by the McLaren team for Hamilton's stop.

    This Luca guy is ridiculas! Did anyone see Shumi's face when this Luca guy was overtaken by another rookie exiting the pits? I got not much hope for him, even the commentators think he isn't good enough. Well, thats based on this race but I dun have high hopes of him. Even old grannies and grandpas can drive faster than him.

    He just wasn't competitive. Let go a place, and drive over the white line on pitlane exit.
