Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso Wins Pole for F-1 British Grand Prix

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso topped qualifying for tomorrow’s British Grand Prix to claim his first pole position in almost two years.

Alonso beat Red Bull’s Mark Webber by 0.47 seconds in a rain-plagued qualifying session at the Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire, England. The Spaniard, who leads the season drivers’ standings, last started from the pole at the Singapore Grand Prix in September 2010

Michael Schumacher of Mercedes will start third next to two-time defending world champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull. Schumacher finished third at the European Grand Prix two weeks ago for his first podium since returning to F-1 in 2010 after a three-year absence.

Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, Lotus’s Kimi Raikkonen, Williams’s Pastor Maldonado, McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton, Force India’s Nico Hulkenburg and Lotus’s Romain Grosjean round out the top-10 qualifiers.

Alonso, who became the season’s first two-time winner at the European Grand Prix, leads the drivers’ standings with 11 points after seven of 20 races. Webber is second with 91 points and Hamilton third with 88.
