Australia Qualifying

Australia Qualifying Press Conference 

Lewis Hamilton has claimed Pole Position for the 1st race in Australia

Although Lewis was very lucky because Robert Kubica would have claimed Pole Position had he not had a slight off on turn 12. At that point Kubica was faster than Hamilton.

Tomorrow should be a great race if they both have similar fuel stratergies, and similar speed.

Button and Barrichello were also very pleased with their qualifying positions, considering their winter test times were not very good.

Timo Glock will have a 5 place grid position penalty for changing his gearbox
