Abu Dhabi 2011 - Qualifying results // Vettel takes another pole position, as Barrichello failed to set a time

Published by Christine

McLaren have looked strong all weekend so far, and for a moment it seemed as though they would be able to take pole position. However, it was Sebastian Vettel on top again, with Hamilton and Button behind him. Rubens Barrichello was unable to run after Williams continued to struggle with their engines. Pastor Maldonado will also be on the back row after a ten place engine-related grid drop.
