Red Bull Racing's Mark Webber beats team-mate Sebastian Vettel to claim pole position for the 2013 F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Webber was fifth after the first-runs in Q3 at the Yas Marina Circuit, but improved on his second and final effort, posting a 1 minute 39.957 second lap, to demote Vettel down to second place on the grid. It was Webber's 13th career pole and equals the record held by fellow Aussie, Jack Brabham.

Vettel did improve as well on his second effort, but not by enough, and later apologised to his team and said an error into Turn 1 had cost him.
