Mark Webber gave Red Bull Racing another pole to maintain the Milton Keynes-based outfit's domination of qualifying in F1 2010.
Webber will now line-up at the head of the pack for Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix, with Nico Rosberg second and the second Red Bull RB6 of Sebastian Vettel in third. Vettel had claimed top spot in Australia and Bahrain.
Webber easily beat his rivals in the end to P1 thanks to a brave tyre choice. He opted for intermediates and that gave him a clear edge, his best time a 1m 49.327s, more than a second up on his closest rival.
Adrian Sutil will start a promising fourth for Force India, knocked down late on, with Williams duo Nico Hulkenberg and Rubens Barrichello fifth and seventh respectively, and Robert Kubica sixth sandwiched between the two Cosworth-powered cars in his Renault. Michael Schumacher took eighth for Mercedes followed by Kamui Kobayashi and Vitantonio Liuzzi.
