Vettel one step closer to winning F1 championship

World championship leader Sebastian Vettel occupies pole position for Sunday’s Formula One Singapore Grand Prix.

The Red Bull driver clinched his 11th pole of the season becoming only the sixth man in F1 history to achieve that feat. The German was more than three-tenths of a second faster than his teammate Mark Webber.

The McLaren pair Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton will start from the second line on the grid ahead of the Ferrari pair of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.

Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg of Mercedes qualified in seventh and eighth and Force India’s Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta will start from ninth and tenth.

Russia’s Lotus Renault driver made a mistake during the first stage of the qualification and starts from a lowly 18th place.
