Vettel Claims Third Formula One Pole of Season at Chinese GP

April 16 (Bloomberg) -- Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel continued his early-season Formula One domination by winning pole position for tomorrow’s Chinese Grand Prix.

The defending world champion posted a time of 1 minute, 33.706 seconds in Shanghai to beat McLaren’s Jenson Button, who qualified in 1:34.421. Vettel has started from pole and won the first two races of the year.

“We have done it again, but every single time is tough,” Vettel told reporters. “It will be a long race, but I think we can be happy with the car.”

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton will start third, next to Nico Rosberg of Mercedes. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, Toro Rosso’s Jaime Alguersuari, Force India’s Paul di Resta, Toro Rosso’s Sebastien Buemi and Vitaly Petrov of Renault rounded out the top ten qualifiers.
