Sebastian shows his Vettel, and takes Pole for Chinese GP

A fantastic performance by Red Bull Racing´s Sebatian Vettel puts him on pole for tomorrow´s GP of China. He played it damm close though.
In the last two sessions of qualifying he only made one run each time, leaving his only attempt to the very last minutes. But it paid off.

On the down side he and fellow team-mate Mark Webber are starting the race light, which means they don´t have much fuel on board, the same for Alonso who came 2nd in his Renault. The two Brawn drivers who finished 4th and 5th are on a normal race strategy, so should expect to overtake the front runners at least at the first pit stops.

Race start is at 15:00hrs local time (08:00 GMT).

I thought he was in IndyCars...................no? Oh well, never mind, he obviously isn´t a top driver...........

You're very welcome Richard!  I thought Helio Castanades?  Think I misspelled his last name, but he was the one who was on trial for tax evasion and aquitted.  Doesn't he drive in these races?

I forgot to explain the headline. In Germany the "V" is pronounced as an "F" So Vettel showed his fettle........if you get my drift.
