F1 Quals: Brazil 2015

Decent weather at Interlagos today, more's the pity, but the track is still naturally slippery.  So what's the grid like for Sunday's race?  Take a look:

4 Valtteri Bottas Williams 1:12.934 1:12.374 1:12.085
5 Kimi Räikkönen Ferrari 1:12.185 1:12.243 1:12.144

16 Pastor Maldonado Lotus 1:13.385

17 Jenson Button McLaren 1:13.425

18 American Rossi Marussia 1:16.151

19 Will Stevens Marussia 1:16.283

NC Fernando Alonso McLaren No Time



Not much to say about this, really.  Rosberg has taken his fifth consecutive pole, Alonso's McLaren died on track with yet another bum engine.

And the president of the FIA, Jean Todt, didn't so much step on a landmine as jump up and down on a landmine when he said to French TV station Canal+ "do you realise that the number of people killed in road accidents is by far bigger than the number of people who died in Paris yesterday?"  I understand he took the opportunity to promote the FIA's road safety program, but that was not the time.

Jean Todt is French, by the way, and the FIA's headquarters are in Paris.  Just saying.

Race in the morning.

1 Open mouth wide, jump in with both feet, after first cladding those feet with sturdy crampons. Hooboy.
