ABOVE: Mark Webber qualified on pole after a very controversial British Grand Prix.

 

So sorry that I didn't have coverage for Practice Two but the guy who topped it was on the pole today. Alonso was second, Vettel third.

 

For the first time in the 2011, Sebastian Vettel wasn't on the front row after Qualifying. His teammate took pole of the the second straight race. But instead of Vettel being second, it was Lewis Hamilton in the McLaren. His good qualifying position might be a start of a comeback for the McLaren team.

 

Webber had taken pole again and Vettel has seemed to drop down. Will Vettel make it back up? The most predictable answer is, Yeah. But if the most un predictable thing happened, it could be no. Right now its too soon to tell and third place is still pretty good but that will be a question for sure.

 

Here are the results:
