Belgian GP - A complicated qualifying

Vettel starts ninth, Kimi stopped with a problem

Spa-Francorchamps, 22 August – Kimi Raikkonen endured a complicated qualifying session, having to park the car a few minutes before the end of Q2, when his car lost oil pressure. The Finn was ninth fastest at the time, but dropped to fourteenth because of the failure. In the other Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel was ninth fastest, making a mistake at the final corner, but will probably start from eighth because of a penalty for Romain Grosjean. The first row was locked out by Mercedes with Lewis Hamilton (1:47.197) on pole and Nico Rosberg (1:47.895) second.

Kimi Raikkonen: “Still hope for the better”
Sebastian Vettel: “No reason to panic”
