2012 KOREAN GP: RED BULL IS FASTEST QUALIFYING TEAM

Red Bull is unstoppable!!!
Mark Webber beat Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel to Korean Grand Prix pole. Vettel had provisional pole after the first runs and was last on an ever-improving track for the final laps, but Webber went quickest by less than 0.1s and Vettel couldn't respond. It was an impressive result as Webber missed out on running the supersoft tyres in FP3 due to an engine software problem.

Lewis Hamilton recovered to take third place on the grid, with Fernando Alonso fourth and Kimi Raikkonen fifth as the main title contenders start in a row. Raikkonen may be a little uneasy, however, as he could be investigated for improving under yellow flags in Q2. That incident left Jenson Button out of the top ten, with Felipe Massa, Romain Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg and the two Mercedes completing the first five rows.

Here are the results:
