2012 Australian Grand Prix Qualifying Results Set Grid

Well now is the time when the sandbagging has stopped.  The cars are now showing what they’ve got and it looks like McLaren has got it!  McLaren cars have qualified 1-2 for tomorrow’s 2012 Australian Grand Prix.  Lewis Hamilton qualified on the pole with his teammate Jenson Button just behind him.

Lotus’ Roman Grojean qualified third with Michael Schumacher qualifying in fourth.  These are great qualifying results for both of them.

I have shown the qualifying results and potential starting grid.  It is possible that the two HRT-Cosworth cars won’t be able to start as they have violated the 107% rule.
