Vettel on pole in Korea

Sebastian Vettel will start the Korean Grand Prix from the front of the grid, ahead of Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber.

Vettel takes over at top in Korea

After Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton had set the pace in both Friday sessions, Red Bull Racing took over at the top of the timesheets in final practice, with Sebastian Vettel quickest and Mark Webber taking P2.

In the final qualifying-style runs at the end of the one-hour session Webber initially set the pace, carving eight tenths of a second off his medium tyre best with a lap of 1:38.132 on the supersoft tyre. He then shaved a little more off that to set a benchmark of 1:38.018.

Hamilton stays ahead in Korea

Having gone fastest in FP1, Lewis Hamilton repeated the feat in FP2 – and again the Briton was only narrowly ahead of the Red Bull pair of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber and Mercedes’ team-mate Nico Rosberg.

Hamilton fastest at slippery KIC

Before the Korean Grand Prix’s first free practice session the talk in the F1 paddock was of the track looking very slippery due to its lack of recent use. That proved to be true with a number of drivers having slides and spins in the first 90 minutes of practice. Among those ending up facing the wrong way was Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton – though that did not stop the Briton posting the fastest time of the session.
