Sebastian Vettel claimed his fourth pole in a row and his seventh of the season today, as Red Bull Racing enjoyed probably its most dominant qualifying of the year ahead of this Sunday’s F1 2010 Hungarian Grand Prix.
It has been revealed that Lewis Hamilton was told by McLaren that team-mate Jenson Button would not try to pass him in the Turkish GP just over a week ago – shortly before his fellow Briton did just that.
It could only happen at Spa. Rain, sun and even some hail, all in the space of one day. A day that marked the return of competitive Formula One to our screens, and a day that marked a return to, well, business as usual.
Formula One’s ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone called an emergency meeting with the team principals minutes before qualifying for the Hungarian GP began on Saturday lunchtime. With television viewing figures waning – in some territories at least – and disappointing box office last time out at Hockenheim, Bernie is officially worried.
