Vettel took pole and Webber second to ensure the best possible position for Red Bull going into the Indian Grand Prix tomorrow at the Buddh Circuit.
McLaren locked out the second row, Hamilton beating Button, with the two Ferrari's taking 5th and 6th Alonso shading it over a constantly improving Massa.
Kimi is a row back alongside Perez while Maldonado and Rosberg complete the top ten.
Rosberg didn't bother putting in an appearance in Q3, no doubt saving his soft option Pirelli's for the race.
All the teams, other than the RB and McLaren, seem to have had problems getting the cars to work on the track.
Neither of the Force India's managed to get through to Q3 at their home Grand Prix.
Petrov outqualified Kovalainen again this weekend - the slump in Heikki's form would appear to coincide with the quashing of rumours linking him with a move up the grid and the increasing reliance of the midfield teams on paying drivers. Rumours linking Senna to the Caterham seat just won't go away. A prediction of mine made in an article written for PureF1.
