Pole Position Not Worth It Anymore

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner believes qualifying on pole position is no longer the key to winning at certain circuits. And Mark Webber’s impressive drive from 18th on the grid to 3rd on the podium in the Chinese Grand Prix of 2011 at Shanghai may just prove his point.

“It makes you question the value of qualifying,” Horner told the Sunday Times. “Now the cars can overtake and with such a big difference between old and new tyres, we are going to have to reassess at each track how important it is to get to the front of the grid. Our strategists will look at how we should be structuring our race weekends.”
