Qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona has just been completed with Brawn’s Jenson Button stealing pole position at the last possible second from Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel.

While it is not unusual these days for Brawn and Red Bull to be fighting for the pole, it is good to see some resurgence from Ferrari with Felipe Massa placing his scarlet racer fourth on the grid just behind Brawn’s Rubens Barrichello. Australia’s Mark Webber will start in fifth place.

 Grid for the 2009 Spanish Grand Prix

  1. Jenson Button – Brawn
  2. Sebastian Vettel – Red Bull
  3. Rubens Barrichello – Brawn
  4. Felipe Massa – Ferrari
  5. Mark Webber – Red Bull
  6. Timo Glock – Toyota
  7. Jarno Trulli – Toyota
  8. Fernando Alonso – Renault
  9. Nico Rosberg – Williams
  10. Robert Kubica – BMW Sauber
  11. Kazuki Nakajima – Williams
  12. Nelson Piquet – Renault
  13. Nick Heidfeld – BMW Sauber
  14. Lewis Hamilton – McLaren
  15. Sebastian Buemi – Toro Rosso
  16. Kimi Raikkonen – Ferrari
  17. Sebastien Bourdais – Toro Rosso
  18. Heikki Kovalainen – McLaren
  19. Adrian Sutil – Force India
  20. Giancarlo Fisichella – Force India

 I have a feeling that this will be another Button benefit with the Brit expected to take yet another race victory, although I’d like Vettel to win. I have a feeling it will be two Brawns followed by two Red Bulls followed by two Toyotas.

 My Predictions

  1. Button
  2. Barrichello
  3. Vettel
  4. Webber
  5. Trulli
  6. Glock
  7. Rosberg
  8. Alonso
