Rosberg on pole in Bahrain

Nico Rosberg made it two poles in two races for Mercedes with a dominant display at the Bahrain International Circuit.

Rosberg’s pole was assured when he set a dominant time of 1:32.330 during the final runs in Q3. Sebastian Vettel for Red Bull, doing his only run in Q3, could not match it and slotted into second, two-tenths down. The consolation for Vettel was Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso aborting his lap after a small error, the Spaniard having to settle for the third place secured by an earlier run.
