Singapore pole stuns Vettel

Singapore pole stuns Vettel

Ricciardo has finished on the dais in his last three trips to Singapore, setting the fastest lap for the past two years and finishing runner-up on both occasions.

Vettel's sensational time of 1min.39.491sec. was the fastest ever pole position time in either of the three configurations of the circuits used since the debut of the event in 2008.

"For my part I know I have to perform but it's always been like that in my career". "I struggled also this morning".

"I don't know [where that time came from]", Vettel said.

"I love this track. We have a lot of races, a lot of time to get points and then we see and count at the end". All the same, I believe in this team and thats why, when I was on the podium, I told the fans that we were on our way! "Today I'll accept a little bit of a defeat", Ricciardo said. "We gave ourselves a decent chance for tomorrow and it's going to be a long, tricky race". We had a hard night yesterday and a better night today. "In theory it should be better here than Monza, but I think it will be close".

"It is a shame that we could not take pole but still confident of victory". "Overall, not a great weekend for us so far".

Meanwhile, Ricciardo had to settle for third, 0.026secs off Verstappen in the sister vehicle, with Kimi Raikkonen fourth in the other Ferrari, two tenths further adrift.

India vs Australia 2017: 15 Reasons to Watch the 1st ODI
It has been becoming a norm in ODI cricket particularly in Asia that a team's top order sets up most of the matches for a team. The skipper has been in top form off late with a renewed discussion saying that yes he can beark Sachin Tendulkar's record.

"Of course, it is a bit distracting if you don't see the right tire temperatures, but I don't think that (Hamilton) has extracted everything from the vehicle that is probably possible here in Singapore", said Wolff. "We have some races coming up where I think we'll be strong".

"I think Seb turned it on in qualifying but I'm looking forward to tomorrow".

Red Bull had topped the timesheets in every session leading up to qualifying and had looked on course for their first front row lockout since the U.S. Grand Prix in 2013, with Verstappen also fastest in the opening two phases of qualifying.

A one-year deal could leave Bottas vulnerable at the end of next season, with Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo among the drivers who will become available.Bottas said he now had the opportunity to nail down a spot with Mercedes with his performances this year and next season.

"I'd take the fourth place because if you look until before qualifying, it could have been awfully more worse". Its not easy to overtake here, but I like this track.

There has been at least one safety auto intervention in every race in Singapore so far. Sebastian Vettel clouted the barriers with a bit more force to do some damage, as did Kevin Magnussen.

Renault's Nico Hulkenberg qualified seventh, and was followed by McLaren's Fernando Alonso.
