Sebastian Vettel won pole position for the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix night race. Ferrari driver and former champion was excellent and deserved his starting position in front of Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo.

 

During the first round, Mercedes continued to struggle while Ferrari and Red Bull continued where they were in free practices. McLaren also looked much more better as Alonso and Button both qualified for the second round. Daniil Kvyat was the fastest with 1:45.450, while both Saubers with Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson, failed to qualify for Q2, together with Pastor Maldonado in the Lotus and both Marussias with Alexander Rossi and Will Stevens.
