YESSSSS! Fisichella at P1.

The commentator said " I'm sure every motor sport fan in India is watching this with great pride" AND I realised I actually was. A great moment.

I hope he gets into points tommorow.

Oh btw, Sutil didn't do a bad job himself.

Best part is... He managed it in Q1 and Q2 as well!! Its genuine pace not just light fuel. If they keep their heads about them, they could win this race tomorrow or at least try for a podium.

Wow what a qualifying ! Fisichella just blasted the way. I m still trying to figure out why didnt Lewis, Hekki didnt make it to the final leg. Yeah and I m also thinking what could have gone wrong with Sutil. I mean even he was out

McLaren have a slow car here. Nothing the drivers could do. Sutil and Button are the real losers of that session if you ask me. Both should really have done better than they did.

Unbelievable qualifying session!
Fisi did a great job, Sutil just missed the cut, even he would have done well if he was in Q3. Now can't wait for the race to see this transform into first points for Force India. Even Sutil has good chance of scoring points tomorrow.

I think the biggest loser today is Button, all his championship rivals are ahead of him. I will put my money on Rubens winning tomorrow. He will make a big dent in Jenson's WDC lead tomorrow.
My top 3 for tomorrow:
Rubens
Kimi
Fisi

Woo Hoo ...

Way to go Force India .... What a qualifying session ... I guess, this is the most enjoyable qualifying session all season that I have seen.

Feel really bad for Sutil. IMHO, his run in Q2 was spoiled as he was folloing another car, which I guess was Heikki's. Nevertheless, he was faster than Lewis, Button and Alonso ... Fantastic ...

Eagerly waiting for tomorrow's race ...

Bravo Force India !!! Well done Fisi. I was jumping on the sofa as he went P1 in Q3 and just crossed my fingers as the others crossed the line. Force India is coming up the grid slowly but steadily. I dont know about a race win but I really hope he gets to the podium. Even more important is that they come home with points after such a brilliant performance.

It should be a great race tomorrow.

P.S Someone please spare poor Badoer. Hes best at testing but sadly cant race. Ferrari need another driver pronto.

It turns out, Fisi is second lightest. Surprising to see Rubens so light and still just P4. Now I think Kimi is going to win this if he manages the usual KERS assisted start.

Weights:
Giancarlo Fisichella: 648 kg
Jarno Trulli: 656.5 kg
Nick Heidfeld: 655 kg
Rubens Barrichello: 644.5 kg
Robert Kubica: 649 kg
Kimi Räikkönen: 655 kg
Timo Glock: 648.5 kg
Sebastian Vettel: 662.5 kg
Mark Webber: 658 kg
Nico Rosberg: 670 kg
Adrian Sutil: 678.5 kg
Lewis Hamilton: 693.5 kg
Fernando Alonso: 684.4 kg
Jenson Button: 694.2 kg
Heikki Kovalainen: 697 kg
Sébastien Buemi: 685 kg
Jaime Alguersuari: 704.5 kg
Kazuki Nakajima: 706.1 kg
Romain Grosjean: 704.7 kg
Luca Badoer: 691.5 kg

If Fisi is the lightest, then I guess he is low on fuel ! Nevertheless, way to go Force India ! Hope their strategy at least gets them into the points this time if not a podium !

Yes.. Yes... Yessssssssssss.. Wo.... hooooooo.

Force India forcing itself into P1 and P11. Kannan buddy, if Fisi is low on fuel for tomorrow's race, so are the other top 10 contenders.

Somehow need to see Fisi on the Podium tomorrow. Which i am sure even he would want to see.

VJ Mallya, your car's are rocking man.

So lets all wish Fisi BEST OF LUCK for tomorrow's race.

Pavan Saar, am not too sure about the fuel load others are carrying ! Anyhow, I guess a lot more of us Indians will be glued to the TV tomorrow, keeping everything crossed hoping for a podium, of course, preferably on the top step of it !

WOW... am speechless. Even if my practical reasoning says that the race will tell a different story, I want Force India to win this race. Imagine the first point that our team ever scores in F1 is with a Pole and Victory and that too at SPA!!!!!!! I'm sure it will make/break some record.

Fantastic job Force India and I'm praying real hard that they win this race.
