Although the results are not yet confirmed by the FIA as timing screens around the world suddenly went down, but many are 100% confident that these results are correct, it is definitely Fernando Alonso on pole. Him, Vettel and Webber were all in the post qualifying press conference.

Championship leader Jenson Button has struggled all weekend long and qualified 8th, while last years champion Lewis Hamilton qualified his season best of 4th with his teammate Kovalainen in 6th.

The two Ferrari's Raikkonen and Massa both made it through to Q3 with Raikkonen qualifying 7th while Massa had a huge crash in Q2, which was caused by a piece of Barrichello's rear suspension hitting him on the helmet before he crashed into the barriers head on.

Rookie, Alguersuari was unable to finish the first qualifying session with a car problem. He will start tomorrows race last.
