Brazilian GP - Qualifying within the norm

One car on the third row and one on the fourth: that was the outcome of the final qualifying of 2012 for Scuderia Ferrari at the Interlagos circuit. In front of his home crowd, Felipe Massa posted the fifth fastest time in Q3, while Fernando Alonso was eighth. The tyre management for the two men was identical: one set of Prime in Q1, when the track was still damp from a light shower before the start, then one of Prime and one Option in Q2, followed by two sets of Option in Q3.
