Webber takes Spanish GP pole

Mark Webber fastest in Barcelona qualifying, heading Red Bull team-mate Sebastian Vettel in another 1-2.

Mark Webber saw off the challenge of Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber to claim a dramatic pole position for the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona.

The two Red Bull cars remained in a class of their own, with Webber and Vettel going head-to-head for top spot, and this time it was the Australian who emerged marginally the faster, emulating his Malaysian qualifying triumph.

Lewis Hamilton proved to be best of the rest, albeit nearly a second adrift of Webber, but managed to fend off former McLaren team-mate Fernando Alonso for the inside of row two. Jenson Button and Michael Schumacher share the third row after neither lived up to earlier promise, while Robert Kubica put his Renault ahead of the second Mercedes of Nico Rosberg.

Felipe Massa and Kamui Kobayashi complete to top ten.

Go Webby! Another pole is terrific reward. Now for a 3rd win! Mark was quicker for the majority of the weekend, excepting final practice where Seb just blew everyone away, but we don't really know what the program was. C'mon Red Bull don't stuff up Mark's or Sebastian's race with bad pitstops or strategy. A 1-2 is on the cards here. Clearly the speed is there!

The real race will be from the 2nd row down, because barring weather issues or any other external circumstances, those Red Bulls will be riding off into the sunset. Watch row 2 with Alonso and Hamilton. Surely this will be a fight for position for the last step of the podium - and Alonso will want to give the local crowd something to cheer about.
