Qualifying results - Russian Grand Prix 2015 - Rosberg scoops pole with Bottas on second row

Nico Rosberg snatched pole position from his teammate, beating Hamilton to the top spot by three tenths of a second. Valtteri Bottas did a great job to finish third overall, making up for Felipe Massa's struggles that saw him fail to get out of Q2. Fernando Alonso was the surprise, because even though the McLaren doesn't have the pace anyone would like, it still shouldn't see him knocked out in Q1.

Sainz was unable to participate after his final practice crash, he was airlifted to hospital but was conscious and okay.
