Petrov causes Chaos in Qualifying 2

Petrov's Renault stopped in Quali 2 with only 2 minutes left on the clock and red flagged the session.  everyone queued at the pit exit.  The cars were all jockeying for position to try to get some decent clear air with only the Toro Rossos, Mclarens, and Vettel not going out.

With the Toro Rosso's in 6th and 7th it was a brave decision by the team but worked out due to the fact that hardly anyone could get a clean fast lap.

Schumi and Kamui went out and Nick Heidfeld, Petrov's teammate in Renault was severely compromised due to the fact that he had done no lap prior to the Red Flag.

This is definitely the best and oddest qualifying of the season so far.  Petrov will start in 10th.

Di Resta outqualifies his teammate again and will start in at least 9th.  Adrian Sutil in 11th needs to get motivated in the Force India.
