Spa Francorchamps (Belgium):

Fans were left to rub eyes in disbelief as Giancarlo Fisichella of the unheralded Force India pulled off the shock of the season to grab the pole position for tomorrow's Belgian Grand Prix.In the most dramatic qualification of the season where
the traditional frontrunners bit dust, Fisichella had a fairytale outing as the veteran Italian made it to the first qualifying session (Q1) and went on to top the chart,
something the outfit did not imagine even in their weirdest of dreams.Teammate Adrian Sutil also nearly made it to the Q1 as well before falling just shy of the mark. Sutil will start 11th tomorrow.Once again both the VJM02 cars demonstrated quick pace throughout the practice sessions with Sutil finishing third in today's final free running.
