Vettel: Pole is the best position to start from tricky Singapore



1231662_636018533095445_174744863_nChampionship leader Sebastian Vettel qualified on pole for Singapore Grand Prix to squeeze his road to a fourth title. The German made a flying lap with a 1m 42.841s in Q3, six-tenths faster than his nearest rival and then sat in his garage and waited.

“It’s a weird feeling standing in the garage when there’s two minutes to go in the session. It’s much worse when you see the others at their final attempt, there’s nothing you can do. I was watching the sector times very closely.” Vettel said.

“Mark [Webber] started with a purple sector 1… then Nico [Rosberg] had a purple sector 2… but then fortunately my last sector was strong enough to just stay ahead. That’s a great feeling then, because it could go wrong, but very happy with the result.”

“The car has been phenomenal all weekend. It’s one of the toughest races we face all year, the toughest physically and mentally. It’s so long, there are so many corners, there’s hardly any room for mistakes. It’s very bumpy… the heat obviously and the humidity plays a factor. It will be tough. Pole is the best position to start from as it’s tricky to start from on this track, but as it’s a long race, there’s plenty of opportunities for all of us. Happy to start from pole, try to have a good start, settle into a nice rhythm and see what we can do.”
