Finally, a team other than Red Bull managed to get their hands on pole position, and it was Lewis Hamilton who took top honours. Sebastian Vettel lines up alongside him on the front row, and with the championship already in the bag, the pressure will be off the new double title-holder.

Last year's race in Korea was wet beyond belief, and so we have yet to see how a dry race will unfold around the track. Equally, we haven't seen a standing start at the International Circuit, so the first lap and the first corner could be very intriguing.

The race gets underway at 7am GMT+1 with the Factbyte Factbox opening up at 6am to provide all the buildup.
