Button 647.5
Raikkonen 644
Barrichello 648
Vettel 631.5
Massa 643.5
Rosberg 642
Kovalainen 644
Alonso 654
Webber 646.5
Nakajima 668

Apparently I underastimated Button, that lap had to be a stanner.
The coverage really sucks in canada this season, very difficult to figure out anything, for example I saw only a short glimps of Alonso in Q3, and he was on prime tire....why?

it doesn't look good for Seb and Webbo:(

Hope Kimi can get Button of the line.

Awesome qualifying, the Iceman is back, and another corker lap for Button just when it was needed. And Barichello didn't do too badly himself on his Birthday.

Who would have thought Hamilton, the two BMW's and two Toyota's would be at the back. Hamilton will be fuming with himself after looking good through out all the practise sessions but tough luck to him. What doesn't hurt him will make him stronger. He's on a two stop strategy with a lot of one stoppers a head of him... it'll make some interesting racing!

I think Alonso might just end up in a podium position tomorrow but we shall see, tomorrow should be a fantastic race!

Lap 66 ... Massa never surrenders !!! Alonso lapping in around 1.15 (too late)!

Hope Rosberg finish the race ending in P6 so he would not be just the "Friday guy" !!

A well deserved one also Nicole and it's obvious Kimi still has what it takes, and had a terrific result in a lesser but improving car.

Congratulations are in order to Jenson and Brawn GP for a very dominating performance.

Today laments the serling job Button does when driving. Smooth driving allows him to preserve his tyres, something Hamilton is one of the worst at. Button was the only driver to maintain decent pace on the soft tyres at the start of the race and because of it, he won easily. Also good stuff from Barichello, a good start effectly sealed his second place.

Vettel showed that he needs more experience to compete with the big boys, also he was perhaps too hard on his tyres at the start?

Awesome to see Ferrari get some points but will it really matter if they leave next year. The whole FIA and Ferrari situation has been ammusing to watch as it unfolds this season. The so called level playing field is no where near as level as we all once thought.

That's nice of you to say Lawrence, thank you and Chippy Dave too ;)

You both have been really supportive when it comes to Kimi and once again, please disregard my arguments with premier, I say a lot of things to him that I don't really mean, I'm just fighting him back using the same weapons he uses.

Congratulations to Jenson and Brawn GP too! Does anyone else think what our commentators thought - that Rubens was ordered to slow Kimi down? I thought it sounded contradicting to what Rubens has been talking in public.

And GFG is also ever so positive about Kimi - he has no other choice - twisted ;)

What we need now is to get Paris to congratulate Brawn GP and Button - lol
