15 have been won from pole (last was Alonso in 2006),
12 have been won from second (Räikkönen in 2007),
seven have been won from third (Montoya in 2005),
four have been won from fourth (Hamilton in 2008),
three have been won from fifth (Herbert in 1995),
and two from lower – Collins (6th in 1958) & Fittipaldi (7th in 1975).

Average Qualifying Position of race winner = 2.429.
