I think Red Bull's qualifying strategy is perfect for Red Bull.
It was apparent that Red Bull wasn't fast enough to win pole. But the only way their can can win is to get the lead and keep it. So their tire strategy is intended to give Vettel the lead.
I believe every single car front of Vettel is on the softer compound. He's on the harder compound. Therefore, unless he gets into an accident, he is assured of assuming the lead within the first ten or fifteen laps, when all the yellow tires pit.
From there, it's classic Red Bull. Lay down fast laps and hope to overcome your initial deficit by the time you make your own first pit stop.
Could be a winning strategy.
