A tight qualifying session was interupted by a huge crash by Sergio Perez in the Sauber at the swimming pool chicane. The crash brought out the full medical team and extraction process, however he is reported to be okay and undergoing tests.
The crash red flagged the session and deprived us of the end of qualifying leaving us with an unusual grid. Furthermore Hamilton has been demoted to 9th after cutting a corner on his hot lap (im not too sure how thats possible apart from the two very obvious places. It leaves the grid as:
I think its unlikely that Perez will race tommorow given the size of his impact and the damage to the car (the thing is a write off chassis and all). Michael Schumacher also puts in a impressive qualifying over Rosberg who lost out after Perez’s crash (he also had a very similar crash in FP3 but missed the barriers) and sets up a very interesting grand prix with lots of cars out of position.
Can someone get the jump on vettel who looks under a lot of pressure here?
Can Hamilton come through the field?
Can williams score some points?
Will we finally see the Safety car??
