S ebastian Vettel has Red Bull in Hungary the eleventh pole Position secured in the twelfth race. As expected earlier, the blue cars on the Hungaroring in Budapest couldn't be beaten. In addition to Vettel, teammate Mark Webber is on the front row. The two bulls separated by a good four tenths in the last section.

'The whole weekend has gone like clockwork so far,' said Vettel afterwards. 'I had two good runs in the last section and can start from the clean side. I am sure that the start will work this time. There is a nice porcelain trophy here that I am missing in my collection.' Webber complained that in the end he couldn't get the best out of it. 'It was a good lap for Seb. Unfortunately, I had a few problems preparing the tires properly.'

Red Bull distributes claps to the competition

As in Hockenheim, Fernando Alonso was the best non-Red Bull. The Spaniard is in third place, but was already 1.2 seconds behind. 'It's a surprise. We were immediately quick at Hockenheim. Now we're more than a second away. I hope we're a little closer tomorrow,' complained the Ferrari star. Anything but a Red Bull win on Sunday would be a surprise, however. However, Sebastian Vettel's team has already missed a few penalties this season.

Alonso also has to share the second row with his teammate. If Felipe Massa overtook the Spaniard again at the start, things could get exciting again. Just a week after the stables management scandal, trouble threatens again.

Button misses top ten

Lewis Hamilton was able to keep the damage to McLaren within limits in fifth place. The 2008 world champion was more than 1.7 seconds away from the top. With teammate Jenson Button, the damage control was less successful. The current champion missed the last knockout round in eleventh place and runs the risk of losing valuable ground in the fight for the World Cup.

A similar picture also prevails with the Mercedes works team. While Nico Rosberg started the race promisingly in sixth place, Michael Schumacher had to be content with 14th place. 'I got the best out of my setup today,' said Rosberg happily. 'Sixth place is a good starting position for scoring points tomorrow. Maybe I can still get a few placesdo well. But the gap to the front is terrifying. '

The two Silver Arrows separated eight tenths in the second section. Schumi is thus starting from a double-digit starting position for the fifth time in a row this season.' The fast lap was indeed not perfect, but it wouldn't have been enough for the top ten either way, 'complained Schumacher afterwards.' This morning we already noticed that we are not fast on a fast lap. '

Petrov wins for the first time Quali duel against Kubica

Instead of Schumacher there are a few unusual names in the top ten of Hungary. The fourth row is completely yellow and black. The team-internal Renault duel surprisingly won Vitaly Petrov against Robert Kubica. The rookie stayed ahead of his Polish team-mate for the first time in the season.

At the end of the top ten, a German was also able to cheer. Nico H├╝lkenberg starts in tenth place behind Pedro de la Rosa, leaving team-mate Rubens Barrichel behind lo (12th place) well behind him.

Sutil starts next to Schumi

Adrian Sutil, on the other hand, had to finish qualifying after the second lap. Budapest couldn't get more than 13th place. This means that Graefelfinger shares the seventh row on the grid with Michael Schumacher. The downward trend in Force India is no surprise. The car is still missing important updates that are already being used successfully by the competition. The Force India mechanics dismantled the new underbody, which was tested on Friday, overnight.

In addition, Sutil for a short time also did without the F-shaft, which brings more top speed on the straight: 'I decided not to drive the F-shaft because I had problems this morning,' explained the German. 'It was actually a good qualifying. I didn't expect to be in 13th place after the difficult weekend so far. I'm satisfied.' As in Hockenheim, however, it will be difficult to achieve the points.

Glock: '19th place like pole position'

The worst in the German six-pack was once again Timo Glock in the Virgin. Still, the man from the Odenwald was satisfied with qualifying. After a long time Glock was able to leave both Lotus behind him again. 'It's a pole position for me,' said the 28-year-old, happily about 19th place. 'The lap was very, very good. If I had been in a top ten car with it, I would have been right at the front. I'm very good satisfied. '
