On a baking hot track in Istanbul, Turkey, Sebastian Vettel took his second Pole Position of the season.  Jenson Button and Rubens Barrachello both made a close second and third respectively.  Oddly enough some of the nominally better cars performed well below par.  In particular Renault and Williams made it into Qualifying session 3.  Lewis Hamilton, still the reigning world champion, had a bad start to the weekend, getting knocked out in Qualifying session 1.  He starts from 16th on the grid.  After last year it is heartbreaking.  But maybe a few months midfield with his head down is what he needs right now.
