Great qualifying session here in Singapore with McLaren and Lewis Hamilton stealing the pole from the overconfident Red Bull.

x-defaultAfter looking very strong in Italy the Sauber’s suffered in Singapore and Kobayashi scored his worse qualifying position this season being kicked out in Q1 and will start the race from P18.

During the Q2 Romain Grosjean made a half-spin and damaged his left-rear tyre after hitting the wall but he was able to continue and will start the race from P8.

Another great qualifying performance from Pastor Maldonado who managed to put his Williams in P2 and is followed by Sebastian Vettel, Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso.
