Mark Webber set the third fastest time in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix but admits he is disappointed not to be starting on the front row.

Webber has won in Brazil on two occasions but has never started on pole in Interlagos.

"We got the most out of that, but it was disappointing not to get onto the front row. I thought the lap would be enough, but we were a tenth off; it’s always tight here in qualifying", he said.

"In the last race of the season it would have been good to get pole, but fair play to McLaren. We don’t know what the weather will do tomorrow, and if all of the race laps will be on intermediate or wet tyres – we need to plan that some might be on slicks too. You never know what will happen here with the weather".
