Q2: KO of the Spanish

As the track was improving, the times improved, although as it happened in the first one, was Nico Rosberg who crushed the run. With little more than a second on a Lewis Hamilton which almost gives the shock (came out to just over two minutes), the German showed his teeth.

deleted of the session were Romain Grosjean, Nico Hülkenberg, Carlos Sainz, Fernando Alonso, Esteban Gutierrez and Felipe Nasr. The spaniards suffered the difficulties of a track where the tip is key. The pilot spaniard complained that it was caught in traffic, and they also picked up the yellow flag at the worst time, but where there is no… “I don’t think that would have changed to be in Q3, but yes to be the 11 or the 12”, he admitted.

Q3: Hamilton ends up in the walls

A Lewis Hamilton very, very nervous (it came out for the second time in this classification) was the cause of that Nico Rosberg not need to just suffer to reach the pole. The british had already left two times when, for lack of a little more than two minutes was given with the inner wall of the variant of the area of the citadel, and gave the fret with your options. The winner of the last two races was overexcited during the whole day, and ended up paying the price. Will be out 9th.

This brought out a red flag which only allowed out to almost everyone to make an attempt, but Rosberg gave him a break. Saw the final moments from the box, in which Daniel Ricciardor took the third place with exactly the same time that Sebastian Vettel: 1:43.966. This spectacular performance will give a first row, since Sergio Pérez, which marked the second time, he suffers a penalty of five places for replacing the gearbox.
