Hamilton surprised himself with pole lap

Hamilton surprised himself with pole lap

Hamilton was even behind McLaren's Fernando Alonso, who was a surprise fifth quickest as the team's relationship with engine partner Honda enters its final six races before a switch to Renault engines next season.

Mercedes will be working long into the night ahead of the Malaysia GP weekend to discover "the gremlin" which grievously hampered their vehicle in Friday practice.

Mistakes on some level are unavoidable but the severity of Vettel sandwiching Red Bull's Max Verstappen in Singapore can not be underestimated in terms of the title. The auto was much better position [than on Friday], but we were something like four or five tenths off the other guys. After all, it was the circuit where Raikkonen won his first ever Formula One race way back in 2003. The fireworks started early in Singapore with a controversial wreck at the start. What's more, Vettel's Ferrari had looked competitive at both rounds and was the favourite for pole position in Malaysia before the issue occurred. Many would say the crash was Vettel's fault, while others put the blame on Verstappen.

After losing 25 points to Hamilton at the last round in Singapore, the issue could be a killer blow for Vettel's slender championship hopes as he looks set to lose more points to the Mercedes driver on Sunday. He now has seven wins for the 2017 season.

The new ICE fitted to Vettel's auto was his fourth of the year, but Ferrari could yet install a fifth engine - incurring a now futile further grid penalty - and will start the Grand Prix in 20th.

Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) 1:30.758 6. The 25 points Bottas could gain would propel him into 2nd place and within striking distance of Hamilton.

"It was a shame for the team what happened with Sebastian [Vettel]". Rosberg recovered to finish third and took the drivers' title away from Hamilton come the end of the year. It was very close with Kimi [Raikkonen] but Vettel, poor guy, couldn't qualify unfortunately, but for us a fantastic result. What about Red Bull?

Vettel is now 28 points behind Hamilton in the fight for the title after the Briton's hat-trick of wins, but the German shone here.

Daniel Ricciardo then went quickest on the super-softs with a 1m32.099s, but his time as the top was short-lived as Raikkonen and the Vettel went quicker still.
