24/4 - San Marino - Jenson Button on pole in Imola

First pole of his career for Jenson with 1m 19.753s of qualifying lap time. WOW! yes it was good to watch someone pressurizing M. Schumacher for a mistake, which he did make and that was what precisely cost him the pole. Never mind, he is still in the first row, that effectively means that with a good start he can very well make it past Button during the start and still make up for it. However, for Jenson, it will be a moment that he might remember for a good part of his life, with a good start to this year and this pole; he's eclipsing any other driver in the English as well as the world press.

Before the qualifying session, Jenson was speaking about trying to meet Ferrari's dual challenge, as against aiming to better them, but during the session he made sure to point out his modesty.

No doubt, a good number of pubs here will switch from their Sunday rugby matches to show the race tomorrow at 1300 hours local time.
