2011 SINGAPORE GP: VETTEL MADE FIRST STEP TO SECURE TITLE

Another Pole for Sebastian Vettel, 11-th this season and new 1-2 for Red Bull. Mark Webber will start from second position. Today, each team secured one starting row. Second will be for McLaren's drivers, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, ahead of the Ferrari drivers, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa. The fourth row is reserved for the Mercedes GP, Nico Rosberg, along Michael Schumacher, who has not seet a time. Force India's drivers, Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta will start from the fifth row tomorrow for the race.

What to say about these qualifications, from the first minute we saw that nobody will beat SebastianVettel, who made the first step to secure another World Champion Title, but if the race would finish in the order of these qualifications, German will be world champion(yet). Alonso, Button and Hamilton will be no more in the fight for the title, but will remain Mark Weber. So expect Weber not to be second :) in tomorrow race. But all can go upside down. Some are still predicting rain for tomorrow, a significant factor are kerbs and close walls, so we can hope for an interesting race tomorrow. The race starts at 14:00 Central European time.
