Turkish GP qualifying: Vettel dominates again

Sebastian Vettel became the first man to claim the first four pole positions of an F1 season in over a decade this afternoon, after he breezed to the front of the grid for tomorrow’s Turkish Grand Prix. The world champion took just one run in the third session to clock an unbeatable time of 1:25.049, outclassing teammate Mark Webber by almost half a second. Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton finished in third and fourth, with Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button filling out row three in a shock-free qualifying session.

Vettel’s weekend started out shakily as he virtually wrote off his Red Bull in Friday’s rain-stricken free practice session, while a pacey Michael Schumacher looked like threatening the pointy end of the grid after recording some impressive times both yesterday and this morning. But with the track dry, it turned out to be business as usual, with the Red Bulls, McLarens, Ferraris, Mercedes and Renaults running true to form in the top ten.

So, what are your predictions for Sunday’s race? Could an over-eager Mark Webber incite a similar incident to the one that saw the Red Bulls lose out to McLaren at last year’s race? Here’s the full line-up for tomorrow’s grid – leave us a comment to let us know what you think might happen…
