Hamilton's spinning wheel cover scoop hurt more then it helped anything

Well it doesn't matter if it hinders or helps, its an illegal car.

EDIT: Just been checking the revised rules and it turns out that those ducts aren't considered aerodynamic surfaces any more and are considered as part of the braking system (under article 11.4) so the rule about the surface moving doesn't apply. :rolleyes:

Never mind. Its a nightmare keeping up.

Kubica takes BMW's first pole position with Massa, Hammilton and Raikkonen behind him. Very interesting qualifying.

Are they going to change the qualifying rules, some thing about 150% speed for slow down lap?

Yes they've changed the rules. Here is a summary.

Spanish qualifying results.

After the testing earlier this week it looked like Renault had caught up a little bit, but I think they surprised everyone with their qualifying performance. The McLarens have definitely lost some ground.

Ferrari's still look dominant but a podium doesn't look out of the question now unless he was very light on fuel.

I agree, it would not bother me so much who wins, just as long as there is some overtaking
to liven things up, processions and pit stop overtaking are so boring.
