No pole but Red Bull confident of Singapore win

Formula One: Vettel on pole in Singapore, Hamilton fifth

Singapore, Sep 16 (PTI) Sebastian Vettel put together a stunning lap in the Ferrari to upstage the Red Bulls and clinch his fourth pole position in the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix here today. Barriers await the drivers who stray rather than run-off areas and Vettel had a brush with a barrier in the final segment of the three-part elimination qualifying that left a visible mark on the auto. Start is an opportunity, strategy, Safety Car, who knows, but tomorrow we're just going to have to play the long game.

Hamilton, who is in charge of the title race for the first time this season following his triumph at the Italian Grand Prix a fortnight ago, will feel somewhat relieved to have seen Vettel behind him with Mercedes braced for a hard weekend.

"It was unbelievable, I'm still full of adrenaline". Kimi Raikkonen will start fourth for Ferrari. And lining up on the third row of the grid leaves him with a challenge tomorrow on the Marina Bay circuit.

He could not have achieved it a more important meeting.

"This is a terrible track for overtaking". "But races aren't won on Saturdays".

His impressive streak at the night race includes three straight wins from 2011-13 during his run of four straight F1 titles with former team Red Bull. Furthermore, it is a track he enjoys racing, his overall record under the lights of Marina Bay is remarkable. This is how the official results looks like after incredible Singapore Grand Prix.
