Nico Rosberg

Racer Mercedes Nico Rosberg showed the best time in qualifying on the track “Spa-Francorchamps”.

Before the start of the qualification became aware of the fact that the pilot Haas Esteban Gutierrez will lose five places on the starting grid of tomorrow’s race due to the dangerous lock Pascal Wehrlein on the line in the third workout. Other fines racers, we are told in the first and second sessions of the free races.

As usual we start with the first segment of qualifying, which was something to see and who to follow. Interestingly, Rosberg his first fast lap put on the rubber Soft. Also a few laps was cancelled due to too many trips outside the track in the turn “Red water”, including Nasr and Magnussen. The greatest situation with Fernando Alonso, who put an updated sixth motor Honda before the third session, but as it turned out, he failed on the circle of departure from the pit lane.

Thus, from the last row of the starting grid will start two former team-mate: Fernando Alonso on McLaren and Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes. Perhaps the Spaniard and the Briton will start from the pit lane to avoid unpleasant incidents in the first hairpin. 19-th and 20-th place in qualifying took Daniil Kvyat at Toro Rosso and Marcus Ericsson of Sauber. As you can see the Russians are still problems, but it is worth noting that last year the engines of the Scuderia Ferrari, which is now Oh so difficult to deal with other teams. 17-th and 18-th results showed Felipe Nasr in the Sauber and the debutant of the Formula 1 in the composition of the manor – 19-year-old Frenchman Esteban Windows.

In the second segment, Rosberg, ricciardo, Vettel and Raikkonen set the first quick circles on the rubber Soft, which will bring additional intrigue to the race tomorrow, as they can actually start the race on the Soft tyres, to make your first cut more, because the SuperSoft tyres in Spa wear out quickly and a lot of them will not last.

15-th and 16-th place in qualifying took Carlos Sainz to Toro Rosso and Pascal Wehrlein. Note that Pascal just simply wasn’t fresh tires to compete in the second segment. Also in the third segment does not hit both the rider and Haas both pilots of the team Renault. Besides Gutierrez showed the 13th time, but he has five penalty positions.

In the third segment the struggle lasted until the last seconds, but as expected, Nico Rosberg won another pole, which became the 28th in his career and sixth this season. The best lap time, qualifying is 1.46,744. Together with him from the first series will start young Dutchman from Red bull Max Verstappen, who gave the Germans only one tenth of a second.

On the third and fourth places were both pilots Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel. Behind him is another Red bull driver Daniel ricciardo.

In sixth and seventh places will start both Force India – Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg. Behind them on the starting grid will be replaced by Valtteri Bottas, Jenson button and Felipe Massa.
