This is F1Minute - Red Bull lock out front row in Singapore qualifying.

Sebastian Vettel secured his 11th pole position of the year in a somewhat subdued qualifying in Singapore. The conditions were clear but hot, and Vitaly Petrov found himself falling out of first qualifying with the new teams, knocked down by Renault teammate Bruno Senna.

In the second session, Sauber driver Kamui Kobayashi hit the kerbs and flew into the air, landing with a bump and heading straight for the barriers. He was okay but his session was over, and he qualified 17th without setting a time. Lewis Hamilton slipped into eighth place but picked up a puncture and had to sit out the rest of Q2 for fear of using up a set of tyres.

He made it through to Q3, but again, only ran once before waiting out the rest of the session in the garage. That was one more lap than either Force India driver did, however, with both Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta failing to appear in Q3, and qualifying 9th and 10th respectively.

Sebastian Vettel took pole, with Mark Webber set to join him on the front row. Jenson Button managed to leapfrog his teammate for third place.
