As can always happen in this part of the world, the heavens opened before qualifying and instead of the rain easing during Q1, it got worse and worse meaning that any cars that didn’t venture out onto the circuit in the first part of the session were never going to set a competitive enough time to make it through to Q2.
The two teams that fell most foul of this though were the most experienced in the paddock: Ferrari and McLaren. With these two contenders safely at the back of the grid, the Red Bulls, which had qualified on pole (Webber) and third (Vettel), only had to worry about each other and perhaps the Mercedes of Rosberg that was also on the front row.
