      Formula One 2011 : Round 4 - Istanbul, Turkey , May 07-08

      We arrive at Istanbul with only Hamilton and McLaren looking to challenge the Red Bull domination. The win at China though was due to a clever tyre strategy by McLaren compounded by a bad start by Vettel, so that might not be the true story. Also, Webber's extraordinary race from 18th to 3rd and the fact that he could have actually won the race if it has lasted a couple of laps show that the Red Bull is still the car to beat.

      Ferrari among others have brought a slew of updates here, so they will be hoping for some better showing.

      FIA set DRS zone on pit straight at Istanbul - Again not entirely

      The FIA has set the zone for the Drag Reduction System for the Turkish Grand Prix.

      Drivers will be able to activate their systems in the race from shortly before turn 11. The systems will remain open until they reach the braking zone for turn 12.

      Significantly, the FIA have again not given drivers the full length of the longest straight on the track to use the devices, in a bid to keep it from making overtaking too easy.

      Talking Alonso fastest in wet Practice 1

      Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso set the pace in a wet first practice session for the Turkish Grand Prix at Istanbul.

      The Spaniard's best lap of 1m38.670s was set on intermediate tyres during a changeable and eventful session that featured a red flag because of an accident involving world champion Sebastian Vettel.

      Mercedes drivers Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher were second and third fastest ahead of the Renault's of Nick Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov.

      Qualifying - Vettel eases to Istanbul Park pole

      Sebastian Vettel’s best lap of 1m 25.049s on his first run in Q3 was so dominant that he didn’t need to make a second, yet still kept pole position. But if that wasn’t a gamble by Red Bull, keeping second-fastest Mark Webber in the garage was a little bit edgier, as the Mercedes, McLarens, Renaults and a lone Ferrari went out to challenge his 1m 25.454s best.

      In the end, Nico Rosberg’s 1m 25.574s came closest for Mercedes and dislodged Lewis Hamilton’s McLaren from third place, even though the Briton improved from 1m 25.618s to 1m 25.595s. Behind them, Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso failed to improve on 1m 25.851s and will line up fifth, with McLaren's Jenson Button alongside him on the strength of his first-run time of 1m 25.982s.

      Vitaly Petrov was Renault’s faster runner with 1m 26.296s earning him seventh slot, ahead of Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher (1m 26.646s) and his own team mate, Nick Heidfeld (1m 26.659s). Felipe Massa will be tenth on the grid in the second Ferrari, but mechanical problems prevented him from doing a lap in Q3.

      Rubens Barrichello so nearly gave the troubled Williams team something to cheer about in Q2, but Heidfeld bumped him from tenth place and Q3 in the dying moments of the session. Thus, in a session dominated by Vettel from Rosberg, Hamilton and Webber, the Brazilian finished up 11th with 1m 26.764s.

      Behind him Adrian Sutil out-qualified Force India team mate Paul di Resta for the first time this year, 1m 27.027s to 1m 27.145s, after the Scot spent most of the 20 minutes in the garage. Pastor Maldonado was 14th in the other Williams with 1m 27.236s, ahead of Sauber’s Sergio Perez on 1m 27.244s and the Toro Rossos of Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari on 1m 27.555s and 1m 27.572s respectively.

      Sauber’s hopes had taken an early dive in Q1, as Massa narrowly headed Vettel, Webber and Hamilton, when Kamui Kobayashi’s C30 rolled to a halt before he’d recorded a time. That left him 24th and last, behind the Lotuses of Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli which were late improvers to 1m 28.780s and 1m 29.673s respectively.

      Behind them Jerome D’Ambrosio narrowly won Virgin’s fight with HRT, lapping his MVR-02 in 1m 30.445s to pip HRT’s Tonio Liuzzi on 1m 30.692s. Then came Timo Glock in the upgraded Virgin on 1m 30.813s and Narain Karthikeyan in the second HRT on 1m 31.564s.

      This order, however, becomes Kovalainen, Trulli, Liuzzi, Glock, Karthikeyan, Kobayashi (assuming the stewards permit him to race without a qualifying time), D’Ambrosio for the grid once the Belgian’s five-place penalty for ignoring yellow flags on Friday is taken into account.

      Awesome race. Alonso doing the best he could, but failed to the way faster Red Bull at the end. Good battles all round, loved the initial fight between the Mclarens . Nice driving by Buemi and Kobayashi to get in the points after starting way behind.

      Bad showing by Massa, at this rate he is not gonna be next year in Ferrari.

      I did refer to Schumacher only as Grandpa. Thats why I put that in a separate line . I thought that it is clear that he is the Grandpa out there
