British GP - Qualifying Results

Results: Hulkenberg 9th (1:54.382)(will start 14th), di Resta 11th (1:57.009)(will start 10th), Karthikeyan 23rd (1:53.040)(will start 22nd).

Well that was a long qualifying session; two and a half hours - longer than most races!

Nico Hulkenberg managed to grab a place inside Q3, but ironically he will start outside the top then and Paul di Resta, who didn't make Q3, will start inside the top ten! This is due to a 5-place grid penalty for Nico Hulkenberg due to a change of gearbox.

Infact Paul was unlucky not to make Q3, just knocked out of the top ten by Alonso & Maldonado at the end of Q2. Both Alonso & Maldonado are under investigation for those laps - as yellow flags were out in the final sector, however neither driver set a personal best - so they'll probably be okay.

As for Narain Karthikeyan, he qualified in 23rd, but will start 22nd due to a penalty for Jean-Eric Vergne.

More analysis later!
