Lewis Hamilton retains his pole position with both Williams drivers locking out the second row, Massa ahead of Bottas. Ferrari are on the third row, with Red Bull disappointed by seventh and tenth.

Further back, McLaren and Manor bring up the rear of the field, with Alonso ahead of Button and Stevens ahead of Merhi.
