F1 2013 Spanish Grand Prix Qualifying Rosberg leads Mercedes front row lockout

To the dismay of the partisan fans Nico Rosberg stormed to a superb pole position in today’s Qualifying session for the Spanish Grand Prix. To complete the Mercedes domination Lewis Hamilton joined him on the front row of the grid in the sister F1 W04. Sebastian Vettel in third place was 0.336s down the road from the flying Rosberg and Kimi Raikkonen a further 0.123s adrift in fourth.

The Ferrari F138′s of local hero Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa rounded out the top six all covered by a fraction over half a second. Romain Grosjean and Mark Webber were next up in seventh and eighth with Sergio Perez and Paul Di Resta closing out the top ten in the final shoot out. It was a good performance by Perez who outshone team mate Jenson Button on this occasion with the latter dipping out in Q2.
