Pole Fifteen for record breaking Vettel

By on Saturday, November 26, 2011

Sebastian Vettel stormed to his 15th pole position of the season at Interlagos.

The double world champion set provisional pole and blitzed the opposition with a time of 1:11.918.

With his final attempt, Mark Webber made it an all Red Bull front row, ahead of the McLarens of Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.

Fernando Alonso was 5th, with his team mate Felipe Massa in 7th. Nico Rosberg split the two Ferraris after a surprise 2nd in Q2.

In what could be his final appearance for Force India, Adrian Sutil was a superb 8th, ahead of home favourite Bruno Senna. Michael Schumacher rounded out the top 10.

The threat of rain was never realised, enabling Rubens Barrichello to set a lap time that he said 'felt like pole' to finish 12th.

Weather forecasts continue to point towards a wet race tomorrow.
