Spanish GP: Qualifying highlights
- From the section Formula 1
Lewis Hamilton sets the fastest time in qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix before being excluded by the stewards for having insufficient fuel in the car for him to get back to the pits and provide a sample, as required by the rules.
Hamilton had qualified over half a second faster than the Williams of Pastor Maldonado but will now start Sunday's race from the back of the grid, promoting the Venezuelan to his first pole position alongside Fernando Alonso's Ferrari.
Hamilton's McLaren team-mate Jenson Button was eliminated during the second part of qualifying along with Red Bull's Mark Webber after struggling to find a comfortable balance with his car.
