Korean Grand Prix: Vettel beats Hamilton to pole

Despite their best efforts, the pair fell less than 0.040secs shy of the lap time required to make it out of Q2 and had to settle for eleventh and twelfth on the grid, although both will be promoted a place by Webber's penalty.

Daniel Ricciardo in 13th and the final man to make up a place at Webber's expense, with Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta back in 14th and 15th for Force India as the Silverstone-based team continued its recent struggles.

Jean-Eric Vergne was 16th on the times ahead of Williams pair Valtteri Bottas and Pastor Maldonado, who again failed to make it past Q1 – although Bottas came noticeably closer having lapped half a second quicker than his team-mate.

Charles Pic edged out team-mate Giedo van der Garde to head the Caterham/Marussia battle at the back, with Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton sharing the back row.

Being a bit unfair on Vettel , not his fault he is driving by far the best car and is just running away with the 2013 tittle, and there have been some good racing amongst the midfield with top teams so f1 not that boring we just have to give credit to Red Bull engineers who know how to manipulate the engine valves in order to gain an advantage.

Stfubritish, Your plea reminds me of La Forza Del Destino, for the second drivers generation in a row it had to be a b***dy German KID to shatter all hopes of some of the one eyed British fan boys and their associates from down under for their perceived hero to be totally bulldozed aside and denned the chance of joining the few called greats of F1.
