Nico Rosberg joked that seven-thousandths of a second is 'nothing' after that margin was the difference between him and Lewis Hamilton, after the Brit beat him to pole in Singapore.

Rosberg claimed provisional pole but was promptly usurped by Hamilton, who recorded the fastest time by 0.007s.

"Seven thousandths when I think back at the lap is nothing!

"A little bit here or there - it's like 'come on I could have done it’ but that’s how it is and Lewis did a great job to get pole. Long race ahead, it's fine."

Rosberg revealed that a brake change between the final practice session and qualifying meant he took a while to get into his usual rhythm.

"We changed brakes going into qualifying, I got into [a] rhythm with the other brakes, it was a bit of a challenge so it took me some time to get into qualifying," he said.

"[The] balance was different as the track had cooled down, a lot more understeer so I had to adapt settings, so pleased in the end I was able to push flat out."
