Japanese GP: Quali

After this morning’s last gasp effort by Heikki Kovalainen to land himself third spot on the grid for tomorrow’s grand prix, Lewis Hamilton will certainly owe him a few pints if, come the end of the season, Lewis finds himself as world champion.

I think it’s hard not to oversell the importance of the gap that will exist on the grid tomorrow, Lewis being four cars up the road from main championship title rival Felipe Massa, who himself must be a bit surprised to find his Ferrari down in fifth.

Kimi Raikkonen’s found a rich seam of form again, and was pushing Lewis hard all morning for the top spot, but the Brit dug deep and pulled out a blinding lap at the end of the session.

Fernando Alonso again continued with his quick pace to get fourth, with Kubica in sixth, Trulli seventh, Glock eighth, and the two STR’s of Vettel and Bourdais respectively in ninth and tenth.

Tomorrow’s race is going to be exciting for sure, and, personally, I think Kimi’s going to win.

Do you…?
