On Saturday, Mark Webber turned the fastest lap in qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix and will start Sunday's race from the pole for Red Bull Racing. It is Webber's 12th pole of his Formula 1 career and first of the 2013 season.
In Q3 Webber bested teammate and championship leader Sebastian Vettel who will line up from second on the grid.
Starting third will be Lewis Hamilton for Mercedes. Romain Grosjean will start from fourth for Lotus and Felipe Massa fifth for Ferrari. Nico Rosberg will roll off from sixth for Mercedes and Nico Hulkenberg's hot streak with Sauber continued as he will start seventh. Fernando Alonso's Ferrari will start eighth as he tries to keep Vettel from securing his fourth straight championship this weekend. For that to happen Vettel would have to win and Alonso finish ninth or worse. Rounding out the drivers in Q3 were Kimi Raikkonen in ninth for Lotus and Jenson Button tenth for McLaren.
The Japanese Grand Prix can be seen live on the NBC Sports Network at 1:30 a.m. ET Sunday morning and again at 11:30 a.m. ET.
