Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel will start from pole position, when all the drivers go wheels to wheels at the Singapore grand prix tomorrow.The win was the German's 41st career pole and he will be hoping to be the first man to gather 3 consecutive wins in Singapore. " I'm very happy with the result. The car has been phenomenal all weekend." The triple world Champion said right after the race
Credit has to go to Nico Rosberg for digging deep and coming agonisingly close in the Mercedes, but could only settle for second place. Lewis Hamilton has also been known to pull one out the bag when it matters, but on a balmy night at Marina Bay Circuit it was not to be, and fifth was the best he could do.
Rosberg commented, ”It’s unfortunate. Sebastian has been really quick the whole weekend. It was very close and it was a pity because one tenth more it would have been possible, but second is still a good result and gives us a good position to start the race tomorrow. We are confident about our race pace so I think a great result is possible.”
Romain Grosjean endured a torrid Friday but Saturday was another story altogether. The Lotus driver looking racy all day, and third place on the grid is a reward for a gutsy turning around of his fortunes. His teammate Kimi Raikkonen injured his back and was out of sorts during the session. He will start from 13th.
