Vettel Takes First Pole At Monza

It was a momentous occasion this afternoon for young Sebastian Vettel, the Toro Rosso driver taking his first pole position in what were quite frankly appalling conditions.

He is the youngest ever pole position winner.

Ferrari’s Felipe Massa was down in 6th, the weather was truly appalling.

Raikkonen and Hamilton both failed to get out of Q2, the latter really not performing in the sodden conditions recording slower and slower lap times.

Congratulations to Vettel, I’m sure this will lead to race wins and championships in the years to come!
