A Great ten-tenths lap from Hamilton to get pole position! It looked like a very controlled lap, hitting all apexes! (;) )
Team-mate Button hasn't had a very good Saturday, mostly lapping around eight, nine tenths off Hamilton's times. Bringing the gap down to six plus tenths puts him sixth on the grid.
-Fantastic effort from Webber to qualify on the front-row here, this afterall being a track he doesn't particularly like. Vettel third, and today has been a bit rough for him. We'll se what comes of not being to bring the car back to the pit.
-Another brilliant fourth (Singapore) from Maldonado! When their long-runs get's your attention, usually Maldonado can pull off a great lap in Q3, and it was no different today. Great result which shows Williams have found the right front-wing again. Also quickest on the straights, so if they can glue it to the car ahead in the twisty bits....
-Nice fifth fastest from Räikkönen and Lotus! Perhaps a tenth or two was there, but this was a very, very good job. Dissapointing that Grosjean didn't improve on his last run.
-Alonso an almost disastrous seventh on the grid, which is a bit of a suprise as Ferrari brought quite a few upgrades here. Perhaps not all were found succesful enough to be bolted on and kept for qualifying?
-A very respectable eight from Rosberg
