But for Honda to not make it out of the 1st round of quals in their HOME RACE? That's just a frickin' disaster for them... and it didn't look like there was something broken.
Mark Webber not making it out of the 1st round is confusing as well; I'm assuming there was SOME mechanical problem there.
Alonso takes his fourth consecutive pole; no surprise there. Kimi Raikkonen, though, took second, and that WAS a surprise. The McLarens seemed to have been struggling with grip and twitchyness, but Kimi turned a brilliant lap to shove "Stoppy" Schumacher into third.
The amazing thing about Silverstone is just how fast the corners are now that the V8s are in the cars. Nobody's lifting unless they make a big mistake! They just go in flat-out and come out the same way.
Button could easily win here, if everyone in front of him smashes into each other. To say this is not his season is to do a disrespect to understatement.
Watching it from home today, transport to Silverstone for the non-driver is non-existant, however my moaning about this at work may mean I have a fellow fan to get a lift in with next year, so not all doom and gloom.
