Hamilton takes Pole

Lewis Hamilton dominated Qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with an absolutely blistering lap in his McLaren Mercedes.

The Brit had been on fire all weekend and took pole in a time of 1:40.630, finding the perfect balance of pace and cornering ability.

He will be joined on the front row by Mark Webber with championship leader Sebastian Vettel in third.

Back in the field it was a was tight affair with less than a few tenths between the cars in fourth to ninth.

One of those to lose out was Fernando Alonso who will start in seventh, but Pastor Maldonado will start fourth in his Williams.

It was not a good session for the Germans of Nico Hulkenburg and Michael Schumacher who both went out in Q2 and will start in 11th and 14th respectively.

It was the usual at the back of the field, but with the race starting in the light and ending in the dark, it could be a fantastic race.
