Lewis Hamilton will start the Singapore Grand Prix from pole position after narrowly beating Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg. Hamilton made an error on his final run in Q3 and locked up into the first corner, the Brit’s middle sector was fast but not brilliant but managed to put in an electric third sector that meant be edged our Rosberg by just 0.007 seconds.
Mercedes had a difficult start to the session as it looked like the Ferrari pair of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen had just enough to topple the ever dominant Mercedes.
Unfortunately for Raikkonen he suffered an issue with his car and was told to stop the car, a cruel twist for the Fin who has looked increasingly competitive this weekend.
Teammate Alonso also looked strong was in the fight for pole position, the Spaniard will line up tomorrow in fifth place. Alonso has won around the streets of Singapore twice but it will take something very special to make it win number three.
The Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo had provisional pole in the closing stages of Q3 much to the delight of the crowd. The Australian will share the second row with teammate Sebastian Vettel who was beaten by Ricciardo but just 0.048.
After the first set of runs in Q3 it was Felipe Massa at the head of the field, the Brazilian who was last on pole position will start tomorrow in sixth after he out qualified Valtteri Bottas for just the fifth time this year.
Daniil Kvyat is in the middle of a McLaren sandwich with the Russian rounding out the top ten with Kevin Magnussen in front and Jenson Button behind in what was a difficult session for the Woking based outfit.
