F1 » Vettel imperious as Red Bull locks-out Austin front-row


Mark Webber looked to have clinched pole position, but a final scorching sector by Sebastian Vettel was enough to put him ahead and deliver a Red Bull front-row lock-out in Austin.

I thought Webber had pole in the bag, and I was very surprised to see Vettel get it after a poor first 2 sectors. I guess he forgot to turn his traction control on :p

Great job by Vettel to pull that one out of nowhere. I have also being thinking that Webber has the inside line for the first corner, so depending on how the starts go Vettel might not have it so easy. It's nice to see Grosjean up there in 3rd too!

Vettel has his engine tuned with the special Renault package . Webber gets the same engine as the others including lotus . Vettel could not match webber let alone the other top drivers with equal equipment .

There's my view on the Vettel Webber car situation.

I think Webber is much harder on the car hence gearbox problems every other race, just different driving styles.

Vettel does less laps all weekend to look after the car, so sorry no conspiracy theory.

Jakari, It's amazing that you can say such utter garbage and without being embarrassed.

Just how many people do you think are "in" on this Vettel conspiracy? All of RBR, all of Renault and the FiA that's around 2000 people so far, they're good at keeping secrets eh?
