Canadian GP - Qualifying Results

Results: di Resta 8th (1:14.705), Hulkenberg 13th (1:14.748), Karthikeyan 24th (1:18.330).

Well that was an interesting session, the Scotsman, Paul di Resta did brilliantly to grab 8th place ahead of Schumacher and Button. I think he also has also saved a set of tyres compared to the leaders, which would give him more strategy options tomorrow, but i'm not 100% on this yet - we'll have to wait and see what the team say.

Nico Hulkenberg will lineup 13th on the grid, a good effort but on his quick lap in Q2 his first sector wasn't as quick as it could have been - his car did have the pace for Q3. Just 0.121s would have put him 7th in Q2! Although in a season as close as this there's no shame in his position and he will be in the hunt for points tomorrow :-)

As for Narain Karthikeyan, he will be disappointed. He was 0.9s slower than teammate de la Rosa which suggests there was some kind of issue - we'll see what he says later.

We'll have more coverage pre-race when we've analysed the data and read what everybody has to say :-)
