Good news! Slappy isn't on pole! Yes! YES! If you'll remember, he was penalized five grid spots for his Moooooo-ooove of the Race at Spain, when he drove into the back of Bruno Senna's Williams. For once, justice is served to Slappy, and it is served in heaping teaspoons of bile and spite... and it is AWSUM! Meanwhile, the winner at Spain, Pratiprasthātr Maldonado, went insane during P3 and drove across the nose of Sergio Perez, much the same way he did to Lewis Hamilton last year. However, these extracurricular activities on Maldonado's part may have led directly to Perez wrecking in Q1 when it looked like his steering failed in the Swimming Pool. Maldonado was peanlized 10 grid spots.
The upshot of all this is that we've got a fine shot of having our sixth winner in six races on Sunday, as Mark Webber is promoted to pole, Lewis Hamilton to 3rd and Lettuce Grosjean to 4th. It'd take Lettuce winning to give us our sixth team winning as well, which I'm gonna guess is unprecedented in F1 history. How cool would that be?
Considering how this year has gone so far, I wouldn't bet against it happening. See ya tomorrow!

Oh, to be sure, he's a great driver, but a lot of his "talent" could also be called "getting away with sh*t". You know how I used to say "FIA" stood for "Ferrari Is All" or "Ferrari International Assistance"? He was the beneficiary of most of the FIA's help.
To be blunt, seeing him win again would be a great story, but I'd personally want to jump into a woodchipper if it happened.
