Vettel takes Hungarian GP pole

Sebastian Vettel heads Red Bull 1-2 in qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Sebastian Vettel claimed another pole position in a stellar qualifying season, heading Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber in a sixth 2-1 result for the Milton Keynes team, at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

The German pumped in two laps good enough for top spot, aided by below par performances for Q2 pacesetter Webber that saw the Australian unable to improve on his last effort, and eventually claimed pole by over three-tenths of a second. Webber, in turn, was comfortably clear of third place as RBR continued the dominance it carried through free practice.

Fernando Alonso was best of the rest for Ferrari, albeit a massive eight-tenths behind Webber, as the Scuderia put both its drivers onto row two. Felipe Massa, badly injured at this race last season, and robbed of victory in Germany last Sunday, will have to come from fourth - on the dirtier side of the grid - if he is to achieve his goal of bouncing back with a win this weekend after trailing his team-mate by four-tenths.

Lewis Hamilton overcame the challenge of Mercedes and Renault to round out the top five, pushing ahead of Nico Rosberg, Vitaly Petrov and Robert Kubica, as the Russian rookie made the most of previous track experience to out-qualify his respected team-mate for the first time this season.

Pedro de la Rosa and Nico Hulkenberg round out the top ten for Sauber and Williams respectively.

Pole machines - those Red Bulls! How much faster can they get? I'm surprised the other teams have not moved to ban the use of Adrian Newey! :) He is obviously an unfair advantage...
