Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel started alongside him on row one while Mark Webber started third for Red Bull, with the second Mercedes of Nico Rosberg fourth.

Paul di Resta, who for much of Q3 had looked set for pole, is fifth, alongside McLaren’s Jenson Button and the two Lotus cars and the two Ferraris completed the top ten.
