Bahrain GP 2009: Toyota Lock-Out Front Row

Toyota secured a front row lock-out for tomorrow’s Bahrain Grand Prix after a very successful session for the Japanese automotive company.  Jarno Trulli will start on pole, with Timo Glock admitting he just couldn’t make the first grid slot.

Sebastian Vettel, the winner of the Chinese Grand Prix last week has to settle for third.  His team mate Mark Webber was knocked out in Q1 after being blocked by Adrian Sutil (16th).  We await a stewards decision on whether the young German will recieve a penalty.

Jenson Button, the current leader of the World Championship starts third, with Lewis Hamilton alongside in 6th.  Barrichello and Alonso make up the next row with strong performances from their drivers, and Ferrari got both cars in the top 10 with Massa starting 8th and Raikkonen 10th.
