This weekend F1 is at Yeongam, South Korea.

Rain (from a passing typhoon) is expected. That should liven up the procession a little. We shall see.

THE POLE NEMESIS

For the 16th time in his career, Lewis Hamilton was second to a Red Bull car on the grid. Vettel has claimed pole 13 times with Hamilton second, while on the other three occasions it was Mark Webber ahead.

That's a high value, but not close to the 23 times Michael Schumacher was pipped for pole by a Williams car. That's the record in F1 for a driver coming second in qualifying to a rival team.

Hamilton has now had 26 second places on the grid. On 16 of those occasions, pole was 'stolen' by a Red Bull. Six were by a Ferrari, always Felipe Massa, during 2007-8. He was pipped by team-mates on the other four occasions: Fernando Alonso at McLaren in Monaco and Italy in 2007, and Nico Rosberg at Mercedes in Spain and Monaco this year.

F1's record number of second places in qualifying belongs to Alain Prost, who started from the humble side of the front row 53 times.

He was beaten for pole by a team-mate 28 times and 26 times by his arch-rival Ayrton Senna (19 when they were team-mates at McLaren, six times when Prost was at Ferrari and once when Prost was at Williams).

Hamilton is only one second place shy of compatriot Damon Hill, who was second on the grid 27 times.

Hill's main nemesis was Prost, who beat him to pole 10 times, all in 1993, when they were team-mates at Williams. Hill was also beaten for pole nine times by his mid-'90s rival Schumacher.

Schumacher is second in the rankings for second places on the grid with 48 such results. Only six times was he beaten by a team-mate for first place, but he has no particular qualifying nemesis - he was second on the grid to no fewer than 17 different drivers in his career. Hill comes out on top, having scored pole in front of Schumacher seven times.

David Coulthard counts 26 second places on the grid, like Hamilton. His nemesis was his McLaren team-mate Mika Hakkinen, who was on pole 15 times with Coulthard second during the 1998-2000 campaigns.

Vettel and Hamilton shared the front row for the 20th time in Korea. That's the same number as Vettel and his team-mate Webber.

KOREA STAT ROUND-UP

• Kimi Raikkonen was second for the sixth time this year, closing in on the season record of seven, recorded six times in F1 history, once by Raikkonen himself in 2003. The others are: Nelson Piquet 1987, Prost 1988, Hakkinen 2000, Rubens Barrichello 2004 and Alonso 2006.

This was Raikkonen's first Yeongam podium, which means the only remaining current F1 tracks where he has yet to take a top-three finish are the upcoming Buddh and Austin circuits.

• Romain Grosjean's third podium of the season mirrored his previous two: just as in Bahrain and Germany, he was third behind Vettel and Lotus team-mate Raikkonen. In five of his six career podiums he has finished behind his team-mate, adding Bahrain and Hungary last year to the 2013 trio.

• Renault had its third podium sweep of the year and its 160th F1 win. In 1996, Renault engines filled the podium five times.

• Nico Hulkenberg matched his best career result of fourth, achieved in Belgium last year. His Sauber team-mate Esteban Gutierrez did the same in 11th (scored previously in Spain).

• As he avoided his spinning Ferrari team-mate Massa, Alonso lost a place on the opening lap for the first time since the 2011 Indian Grand Prix, breaking a string of 35 races in which he either gained places or maintained his grid position (his accidents at the start at Spa and Suzuka last year are excluded as he didn't complete the first lap). Sixth place at the flag was the worst result for Alonso at this track.

• Pastor Maldonado, on the other hand, recorded the best start of the season, gaining nine places on the opening lap.

• Webber's win drought reached 25 races after Korea, the same as he endured from the 2010 Belgian GP to the 2011 Abu Dhabi GP, and the longest since he started winning, back in Germany 2009.

• Force India recorded another double retirement, the fourth this year after Malaysia, Hungary and Italy. In its last 10 starts, the team saw the chequered flag only twice, with Sutil in Belgium and Singapore.

It is dead last in the teams' ranking of kilometres run this year on 6958. Toro Rosso is second to last at 7269. The team that's run most kilometres this year is McLaren (8431), as a result of recording only three retirements – in the closing stages in Malaysia, Monaco and Great Britain. Its drivers have both been officially classified in every race so far.

• This was Vettel's 42nd pole and the 208th for a Renault engine, as the French firm equalled Ferrari at the top of the all-time standings. It was also the 125th pole for a German driver; Germany now shares second on the all-time list with Brazil, while Great Britain leads on 217.

• After Jules Bianchi's penalty for impeding Paul di Resta, Vettel became the only driver who has started in front of his team-mate in all 14 races so far this year.

• In his four Korean Grands Prix, Alonso has now occupied all the grid slots from third to sixth: third in 2010, fourth in '12, fifth this year and sixth in 2011. This was his 28th fifth place on an F1 grid, matching the all-time record set by Rubens Barrichello

RIP

De Villota found dead in hotel room
11 October 2013

Ex-Marussia reserve driver María de Villota has been found dead in a hotel room in Seville. The Spaniard, who was working for the Banbury-based outfit when she suffered life-threatening injuries in a testing crash last year, was 33.

A statement published on de Villota's Facebook page on Friday morning, signed by her family, explained: "Dear friends: Maria has left us, she had to go to heaven like all angels. We thank God for the extra year and a half that he left her with us."

Although de Villota lost her right eye and suffered major skull damage after hitting a trailer during the aforementioned straight line test at Duxford Aerodrome, she was able to recover and returned to the F1 paddock at this year's Spanish Grand Prix.

De Villota formerly contested the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) and Superleague Formula, and was the daughter of ex-Formula 1 racer Emilio.

GPUpdate.net extends its condolences to the family and friends of María de Villota.
