In spite of his pessamistic predictions, Jenson Button continues to do well.  He took took pole just a hairs-breadth ahead of Sebastian Vettel.  Jenson’s team mate, Rubens Barrachello came third in the other Brawn.

Fellipe Massa brought a glimmer of light for Ferrari by coming in forth.  Vettel’s Australian team mate, Mark Webber came fifth in the other Red Bull.

Lewis Hamilton’s glass-is-half-empty prediction came true and he starts the race way down in seventeenth place.  If he sits tight he might make it into the points, but he is quoted as saying that the Catalunyan track doesn’t suit his car.  Well, we’ll see.

So here is the grid in full:

1.  Button       Brawn-Mercedes

2.  Vettel       Red Bull-Renault

4.  Massa        Ferrari
3.  Barrichello  Brawn-Mercedes

5.  Webber       Red Bull-Renault

6.  Glock        Toyota

7.  Trulli       Toyota

8.  Alonso       Renault

9.  Rosberg      Williams-Toyota

10.  Kubica       BMW-Sauber

11.  Nakajima     Williams-Toyota

12.  Piquet       Renault

13.  Heidfeld     BMW-Sauber

14.  Hamilton     McLaren-Mercedes

15.  Buemi        Toro Rosso-Ferrari

16.  Raikkonen    Ferrari

17.  Bourdais     Toro Rosso-Ferrari

18.  Kovalainen   McLaren-Mercedes
