Mark Webber produced a brilliant performance in qualifying at Yas Marina on Saturday evening to beat Red Bull team mate Sebastian Vettel to pole position.

The Australian put together three near-perfect sectors on his final Q3 run to record a lap of 1m 39.957s – just over a tenth of a second quicker than Vettel’s best effort. Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg was third, with team mate Lewis Hamilton spinning as he tried to improve his position.
