Abu Dhabi GP 2009: Hamilton Storms To Pole

Outgoing World Champion Lewis Hamilton stormed today’s qualifying session in Abu Dhabi, taking pole position.  His team mate Heikki Kovalainen wasn’t so lucky and instead of it being a 1-2 for McLaren, he only managed 13th and will take a 5 place drop for a new gearbox.

Instead in 2nd and 3rd we have the two Red Bull’s, and Jenson Button takes up 5th.

Giancarlo Fisichella and Fernando Alonso were big names out in Q1, and Kimi Raikkonen didn’t even make it into Q3 for his final qualifying with Ferrari.
