Quick off the Mark, Webber will win!

Germany's Sebastian Vettel has won Pole Position for the European Grand Prix, placing a Red Bull on the front row for the 13th consecutive race.

It's the fourth time of the 2010 F1 season where the Bulls have taken control of the front row and although the McLaren's appeared to be coming to life over the last few meetings, the Red Bulls returned to their dominating position.

Although don't however, expect a Sebastian Vettel win.

Vettel has now managed to secure four pole positions this 2010 season, but has gone on to produce zero wins from these starts and at 10/11, I'm not at all tempted to back the German.

His only season victory was in Malaysia where he started in P3, so this looks good for Mark Webber after qualifying in P2, with the current championship leader Lewis Hamilton in third place for race day at Valencia.

In my opinion if Mark Webber can lead after the first lap, perhaps even the first corner, he won't let that slip and will go on to win.

With unhappy paddock rubbings of Ferrari's mid week testing session, sorry, 'Media Day' giving the Scuderia's the advantage this week, Fernando Alonso's price shortened but Alonso underperformed on Saturday and could only manage P4 in the qualification session.

Although it must have helped the team to a degree as Felipe Massa worked his way to a fifth best time in the final qualification session.

Lewis Hamilton currently leads the drivers' standing with 109 points followed by Jenson Button on 106, but the McLaren team expect that to change for the worse this weekend after not being able to get a car on the front row.

Valencia's track is high speed and there's little room for overtaking. The front runners will dominate the race throughout and expect position changes to occur only when the pit-stops come into play.

If McLaren can get the strategy right they do stand a chance with Lewis Hamilton (4/1 for the win), but forget about Jenson Button (28/1) this weekend.

I'd personally favour Mark Webber priced at 7/2, even Hamilton at 4/1 rather than a far too short 10/11 about Sebastian Vettel winning the European Grand Prix.
