Mark Webber says his Bahrain Grand Prix is ruined after what he labeled as a disastrous qualifying on Saturday.
The Australian was slowed by Force India's Adrian Sutil in his final run in Q1, meaning he was unable to make the cut. Sutil was given a three-place penalty for the incident, but Webber will start the race from 18th position.
The Red Bull driver admitted he had no hopes for tomorrow.
"I had traffic on the last corner and therefore wasn't quick enough to go through," said Webber "I don't usually get caught out with that problem and that was the worst place to get nailed, as it wrecked both my flying laps. I had nowhere to go in the last corner of my first lap and then Sutil slip-streamed past me for the start of my second, so it was a disaster.
"Q1 is the worst session to have had that problem, as now we're at the back for tomorrow -- my race is screwed."
