Indian Grand Prix: Vettel on pole in Red Bull front rowSat, 27 Oct 2012 00:00:00 -0700
Sebastian Vettel has taken pole position for Red Bull for the Indian F1 Grand Prix tomorrow. Team mate Mark Webber is in second place.
Red Bull may have had an up and down season this year, but it looks like they’re coming good as the F1 season reaches a climax.
The Korean Grand Prix two weeks ago saw a front row lock-out by Red Bull, and it’s a trick they’ve managed again this morning in New Delhi in qualifying for the 2012 Indian Grand Prix, making that three Red Bull front row lock outs in succession.
Sebastian Vettel – the fastest man in earlier qualifying – stamped his re-found authority with another convincing pole, with team mate Mark Webber slotting in alongside as wingman.
Row two for tomorrow’s race sees a McLaren lock-out with Lewis Hamilton in third place and Jenson Button in fourth, with row three locked out by Ferrari with Alonso in fifth and Massa in sixth. Which will at least make for a colour coordinated grid.
Behind the big three teams, Kimi Raikkonen took seventh for Lotus, Sergio Perez eighth for Sauber, Pastor Maldonado ninth for Williams and Nico Rosberg – who made it in to Q3 but didn’t set a time – took tenth.
There’s no telling what tomorrow’s race in New Delhi will bring, but on this form Vettel looks set for another win – and another world championship.
