Red Bull back on form: Vettel denies Button pole

0

After a miserable Monaco, the Red Bull team has redeemed itself but taking pole position for the Turkish Grand Prix. With a last lap gasp, Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel pipped Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello for pole position while teammate Mark Webber finished fourth behind both Brawn GP cars.

With 28 points gaping the championship point leader Button and Vettel, it was critical for Red Bulls chances to remain within reach of the title. Also of note was both Ferrari’s of Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa qualifying in sixth and seventh but Toyota’s Jarno Trulli claimed a crucial fifth place which was very important for Toyota’s efforts which have come under fire of late.

Equally concerning were the 10th and 11th of BMW’s drivers and the 14tha nd 16th position of McLarens two pilots. Both teams struggling for relevancy this year.
