I’d like to see Vettel on pole regularly again. I’m not saying that to troll – I’m saying it because I want to see how far he can go with his records.10th December 2011, 0:39 at 12:39 am #187426EstesarkParticipant
I’d like to see a different record being set next year – the greatest number of different drivers on pole in one season :)10th December 2011, 0:43 at 12:43 am #187427Prisoner MonkeysParticipant
I’m afraid I can’t see that happening, @estesark – not unless five teams make utterly fantastic cars for 2012.10th December 2011, 0:43 at 12:43 am #187428matt90Participant
I want Hamilton and Button to share a handful, but all the front runners (by this I mean Vettel and Alonso) should get a few too. Also Raikkonen to get a couple of completely surprise poles along with di Resta getting one and Senna getting close in a Williams…10th December 2011, 0:45 at 12:45 am #187429EstesarkParticipant
@prisoner-monkeys, you’re quite right, but this thread isn’t about who will be on pole at next year’s races, only who we would like to see on pole. I’m fully aware that my wish won’t be fulfilled!10th December 2011, 8:30 at 8:30 am #187430raymondu999Participant
Could I just say it would be fantastic to have Kimi (who’s not too shabby at Spa) to get pole at Spa?10th December 2011, 9:15 at 9:15 am #187431magon4Participant
Hülkenberg at Interlagos…10th December 2011, 9:29 at 9:29 am #187432Magnificent GeoffreyParticipant
I would like to see Kamui Kobayashi on pole for every race.10th December 2011, 9:49 at 9:49 am #187433EllParticipant
I can see Vettel, Mclaren and Alonso all grabbing some. Schumacher, Hamilton or Raikkonnen at Spa.10th December 2011, 12:04 at 12:04 pm #187434raymondu999Participant
@Magnifficent-Geoffrey Spoken like a true Magnificent Geoffrey :P
On that note; I’d love to see the same for Sebastian Vettel.10th December 2011, 14:02 at 2:02 pm #187435Benjamin LowryParticipant
It’d be really nice to see Webber get pole in Australia, because then he may finally finish above 5th in his home race. Ditto Vettel in Germany (although he has at least finished on the podium).10th December 2011, 17:10 at 5:10 pm #187436VettelSMember
In order of preference: Schumacher, Vettel, Raikkonen.10th December 2011, 17:33 at 5:33 pm #187437AlexParticipant
The season opener should be someone from outside the top three teams, just to ram home to us all that this is a new season. How about Raikonnen for Melbourne? That would be exciting!
Then Alonso on pole for Ferrari in Malaysia – showing that Ferrari intends to give a proper showing in this year’s title fight.
Once it’s been established that this is a real contest, I’d love it Vettel proved that this year’s records were more about the man than the car by taking half the poles over the season anyway. Hamilton would surely snatch a couple – I reckon he and Vettel are the best qualifiers on the grid – and it would be unbelievably awesome if Schumacher could somehow have one last hurrah on a wet Saturday in Germany.
How do those five sound is potential pole-winners? I know I’d be on the edge of my seat.10th December 2011, 21:10 at 9:10 pm #187438
