Shanghai, Apr 17 (ANI): Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel took pole position for Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix at the Shanghai International Circuit, ahead of team-mate Mark Webber and Ferrari's Fernando Alonso.
Vettel's time of one minute 34.558 seconds was 0.248secs quicker than Webber, and 0.355secs faster than Alonso.
It is Vettel's third pole position in four races, and the second one-two position for Red Bull in this season after doing the same in Australia.
"I felt unhappy with the car at the start of qualifying, but if you look at the points position it is still a fight between four teams. Right now everyone can still win," The Telegraph quoted Vettel, as saying.
Mercedes' Nico Rosberg qualified in fourth, followed by reigning champion Jenson Button at fifth, and his McLaren's team-mate Lewis Hamilton sixth.
Seven-time champion Michael Schumacher, who is making a return this season after three years, qualified at ninth. (ANI)
