For the first time in ten years, Fernando Alonso was out-qualified by a teammate at Catalunya, the venue of the Spanish Grand Prix, on Saturday.

The Spaniard clung on to proceed to the final shootout after a close session in the second leg of qualifying and was then beaten by teammate Kimi Raikkonen in Q3.

"This wasn’t a good qualifying session," Alonso said. "I'd definitely have liked to be starting from further up.

"Kimi did very well and I hope that both Ferraris can finish higher up," he added.

The last time a teammate started ahead of Alonso in Barcelona was in 2004 when Jarno Trulli qualified fourth while the Spaniard started eighth in a Renault.

For Sunday’s race, home hero Alonso will start seventh, one place behind Raikkonen. It is the second time this season the Finn will start ahead of the two-time world champion.
