An absolute crazy qualifying session here at Silverstone.

Fernando_Alonso-British_GP-Pole_PositionA red flag stopped Q2 with a little more than 6 minutes to go and both Ferraris in real danger to be kicked out of Q3 and Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton looking very strong.

All that was turned around in the last minutes and in Q3 the Ferraris were strong with Mark Webber, Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel fighting their way between them while Lewis Hamilton limped back to 8th.
