There is always 2005!
The penultimate Qualifying of the year, and there are some surprises!
Ralf Schumacher has pole, but only just as the Renault team are showing their intent to win the constructors title, though Michael Schumacher is right behind. Minardi have bought some upgrades and have easily had their best qualifying session of the year, whilst HWNSNBM is a strong 6th. Williams are disappointing, but maybe are just getting used to new parts. Justin Wilson starts 22nd. The worst a Ferrari has qualified this season was 3rd place before now.. Whilst Sutil must be dissapointed to be 24th, 2.7 seconds is about as close to pole as he has been this year, the field is just that tight!
The race is 73 laps.
Also rthe following teams have yet to confirm an engine for 2004 and if they don't act soon will be left at the mercy of the AI!
McLaren (Currently running Mercedes)
BAR (Working towards a Toyota deal, but not signed yet) (Currently running Honda, can't resign with them because of Minardi)
Sauber (Currently running Petronas)
Jaguar (Should run a Ford powerplant really!) (Currently running CR5)
Toyota (Should run Toyota but the engine company is a biatch in this game) (Toyota)
Ansimov (Currently running the Hart, frankly lucky dip is probably a better option then running this engine again...)
