Qualifying is King Only four times has Formula 1 visited Valencia and three of those races have been won by the pole sitter. With wide forgiving run off areas retirements are low. Infact last years race provided the most finishes ever in a grand prix, 24, or to put it another way, all of them. This means that the man at the front on Saturday is most likely to be the man on the top step of the podium come Sunday. So if nothing elsexpect a nail biting qualifying.
