The obvious joke
A Pole on pole. We have waited 25 races to say that, and finally Robert Kubica was able to conquer his first Formula One pole position - and the first one for Poland and BMW Sauber.
At the age of 23 years, 3 months and 30 days, Kubica is the fifth youngest in the all-time age chart, between his two colleagues Lewis Hamilton (22 years, 5 months and 3 days in Canada 2007) and Kimi Raikkonen (23 years 5 months and 6 days in Malaysia 2003). The current record belongs to Fernando Alonso, who at the age of 22 years and 26 days claimed his maiden pole position in Hungary 2003.
Kubica also broke a string of 21 Ferrari-McLaren pole positions, which started at the 2006 Japanese Grand Prix. And 2006 was also the last year that saw three different drivers from three different teams take the first three poles of the season. The trio back then was composed of Michael Schumacher (Ferrari), Giancarlo Fisichella (Renault) and Jenson Button (Honda).
