Webber OUT in first Qualifying Session!

I think the title says it all.  Mark went out in first Quali - KERS was switched off on his car before quali started, after free practice this morning and a team mistake, putting him out on the harder tyre when he was "on the bubble" (as Brundle calls it) in 16th place.  He couldn't improve and Schumi popping into 5th from 18th pushed him to 17th, while Maldonado coming behind Webbo put his car into 15th and bye bye Mark.

Brundle saying there's a second to be found from the soft tyre - silly not to have used it Red Bull - tut tut!

HRT didn't show the speed from yesterday and both qualified behind their Virgin rivals.

Renault is looking strong.
