Formula One World Championship leader Sebastian Vettel will start tomorrow’s race from pole position after setting the fastest lap in qualifying.

The Red Bull driver set a time of 1minute 19.815seconds pipping McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton by 0.163seconds.

McLaren’s Jenson Button will start third alongside a Ferrari, but surprisingly it’s Felipe Massa with Fernando Alonso fifth.

Mark Webber in the sister Red Bull qualified sixth 0.659seconds behind his team-mate.

The rest of the top ten will be Nico Rosberg, Adrian Sutil, Michael Schumacher and Sergio Perez.

Virgin and HRT both had some fears ahead of qualifying regarding the 107% rule, but they shouldn’t have worried as all four drivers got within 5 seconds of the fastest time set in Q1.
