Bread and Buddh stuff for Vettel

By on Saturday, October 27, 2012

Sebastian Vettel's 35th pole position of his career wasn't one of his finest, but the championship leader is nonetheless satisfied to take the front slot.

Vettel made a couple of mistakes on his first flying lap in Q3 but recovered to set the fastest time by 0.044s.

"Pole is the best place to start from, so I’m happy with that. We had a good qualifying session and a good weekend so far with no car issues", he said.

"My first attempt in Q3 wasn’t great, I was a bit too greedy with braking into Turn 4, but after that we had a good second run and it was enough pole. Mclaren, Ferrari and Lotus look competitive in race trim, so we’ll see what happens tomorrow – they will be pushing hard."

For the third successive race, Red Bull locked out the front row.

"It was great for us today", said Mark Webber.

"We put in a lot of effort to make sure we had a great car to get as high up the grid as possible. It was very, very close with Seb and I, both of us only really had one run in Q3, Seb made a mistake on his first lap and I couldn’t get the tyre prep right for the second run, but that’s how it was. Tomorrow should be a good race, I think it will be tighter between all of us, but we should have enough. It’s a challenging track with quick chicanes and you need to be very accurate when entering the corners".
