Awesome Vettel storms to last pole of 2011

Sebastian Vettel is on pole again, after a near-perfect lap in Brazil.

Sebastian Vettel produced an incredible display of speed to take the final pole position of 2011. Vettel's lap can only be described as perfect, as he beat team mate Mark Webber in Brazil. The McLarens share the second row, as Red Bull reigned supreme for the final time in 2011.

Vettel was not going to be beaten after a superb lap
 Fernando Alonso yet again starts fifth for Ferrari, while Nico Rosberg, who looked fantastic in Q2, qualified sixth, beating Ferrari's Felipe Massa. Adrian Sutil, who is fighting for his seat, starts a strong eighth, while Bruno Senna wowed his home fans with ninth. Michael Schumacher didn't set a time in Q3, and starts tenth. Paul di Resta just missed out on Q3 and will start eleventh. On what might be his last ever Formula One race, Rubens Barrichello put in a brilliant lap to qualify twelfth. Barrichello said it "felt like a pole lap." Bruno Senna's late charge in Q2 meant neither Toro Rosso went through, while both Sauber's were eliminated also, along with Petrov, di Resta and Barrichello.

Pastor Maldonado starts 18th for Williams after being eliminated in Q1, along with the three new teams. Unusually, both HRT's outqualified both Virgins. With the threat of rain tomorrow, it should be an interesting race.
