There was a new record holder named Sebastian Vettel when the Qualifying session in Brazil was finished. The young German Red Bull driver took his 15th pole of this season breaking the all-time single-season record of 14. Vettel has set a new standard of 15 poles in a single season, which might be a record that lasts for a while. That is, if Vettel doesn't break it himself.

 

d11bra1382.jpgNext on the grid was Vettel's teammate, Webber. Then came the two McLarens led by Button, then Alonso, Rosberg, and Massa. Sutil and Senna followed, while Schumacher didn't set a time.

 

Ferrari was once again off the pace, which was a disappointment for Massa, who is celebrating his home race, and his 100th with Ferrari. He qualified seventh and Alonso was fifth.

Barrichello did well on what might be his last ever qualifying session with a twelfth, but it will never be the same if Rubens leaves. All hope for the best, and hopefully we'll get the best.
