Just a quick one today... even though I missed posting for the last 2 races (for those not in the know, I've been sampling some of Bavaria's finest V10's myself ) qualifying has just finished and Trulli has nicked it for Toyota's first ever pole position. However, the big news of the event, is that Michelin have requested that they be allowed to ship over new 'Barcelona' spec tyres for their teams, as they've admitted that it's unlikely that their current tyres will last the race distance. Indeed such is the seriousness of the situation, Renault have already stated that they won't race with their current tyres, and BAR-Honda and Red Bull Racing are awaiting clarification with regards to their decision. Only McLaren seem happy with the tyre. It'll be interesting to see how this pans out, because Brundle speculated that they'd be in breach of around 5 regulations if the teams do swap rubber, which surely cannot go unpunished? Funnily it comes only a couple of weeks after the FIA issued a statement to the teams warning that the tyres should be durable enough to complete a race distance, without safety concerns. Qualifying 1. Trulli 2. Räikkönen 3. Button 4. Fisichella 5. Schumacher 6. Alonso 7. Barrichello 8. Sato. That order might change though pending the outcome of the Michelin crisis. Thoughts?
