Lewis Hamilton takes pole position at Singapore Grand Prix
Lotus’ Romain Grosjean will start from eighth, recovering from heavy contact with a wall earlier in the qualifying session. The Frenchman again beat teammate Kimi Raikkonen, who was down in 12th, dealing a blow to his championship challenge.
Mercedes pair Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg finished ninth and 10th, having failed to set times in Q3. Instead, they only managed formation laps on harder tires, meaning they will start on that rubber in the race and ensuring they have a different strategy to the cars ahead.
Felipe Massa of Ferrari qualified 13th place, a place ahead of Sauber’s Sergio Perez, who finished second in the previous race but whose car had been off the pace throughout practice.
